Fantastic....Love the shadows and that u seem to capture just the light enough to make the figures and people look dark, kind of like spirits of some kind, and yet to notice that they are people and specific objects.
Really great....congratulations on your complete gallery, every single picture is fantastic.

it's so surreal looking.
i find it hard to believe that places this beautiful actually exist...it's a pity, living in one place for your whole life. never getting to travel really restricts the amount of inspiration you can acquire from such other places...i would adore traveling to China...or Japan, or any place with a culture so breathtakingly different than what i see here.
don't ask why my comments are so random...just rambling.

Very nice composition....the angle in relation to the tower is great. The flare works well and can really feel the sloum mood. Would have been good if less people were around....somtimes i hate waiting....its a bitch. Great shot
