    From the thumbnail, was not sure what this was. Well presented!

    I really like the angle you have chosen - It really underlines the sheer size and strength of the buildings. I'm not sure about the B&W treatment - hope you post an outtake of the colour versioin.

    This is certainly a super-popular subject, but your take on it is very nice. The B&W treatment is very good here with a nice range of tones and crisp detail. Ordinarily, I try to get an interesting skyline (with nice cloud shapes!) into a photo like this but in this case that plain grey sky works well. It provides and nice in/yang, positive/negative space to the composition...

    My initial attraction to this was softened by the halos around the top of the buildings and the radial brush strokes in the sky. My eye is confused by the very bright valleys between the buildings which one would expect to be darker then the heights. I think colour might have better carried off the excellent composition and camera angle.

    Terrific graphic quality, very dramatic.

    Very striking image. Do people really live in places like this? Hard for a country person to even contemplate!

    Striking view, but would like to see something to break up the uniformity - maybe person in white on one of the balconies?

    Interesting perspective, looks a lot like stacks of plates. Did you notice the strong haloing from your post-processing methods? If you could fix that it would be even better.
