    Thanks, it’s one of my favourite shots. It looks oversaturated at small resolution, less so full sized.

    Yes, the exposure is blown out in the top right hand corner, but it was a chance shot made by sticking my camera out of a 9th floor window, resting it on a rather shaky electrical junction box which happened to be fastened to the wall outside, and just guessing the f stop and speed, which I set manually.

    The result was surprisingly useable, but not perfect. I have a couple of other versions of this shot, which I’ll upload soon.

    Well, someone just purchased a large canvas print of this photo, so I hope they like it. The oversaturation should render well on the canvas.
