Hi Ally !!!
I don't know why, but I really enjoy photographs showing roofs of buildings. Your composition maches my expectation, and in addition there is the green colour of the nature. Very nice showing, looks like a nice place to live in.

Bonjour, chère Ally,
Très intéressante image relative à l'habitat. C'est un choix : maison individuelle ou appartement !
C'est judicieux de nous montrer les deux aspects.
Pour ma part, le choix se porterait sur une maison indépendante !!!
Très bonne journée.

The distance between the houses and the mountain is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the houses and of the buildings. There is a good contrast between the colors of the scene. Have a nice day.

Cheras is not far away from my present place. I like this excellent photo showing red roofs of link houses and the majestic condominium houses in the BG. The color contrast and the chosen viewpoint are excellent. Well done!!!

It's great view point of this cityscape in a nice color scheme, contrast and sharpness. Exposure is handled well so luminous with excellent detail added by freshgreenery. Layout and perspective are just right, good depth with the high rise apartment building provides nice backdrop. Well done, TFS

Very nice composition with this part of the city, where despite large buildings, we can still see plenty of vegetation, is very nice.
Nice vivid colors with red roofs and green tones.
Good management of the light and optimum clarity.
Have a nice weekend.

I like the symmetry in this photograph of yours.The rows of colorful roofs going up in parallel lines and culminating in a multi-storeyed building having a hilltop in the background.The frame is perfect with good sharpness and lots of colors all along.Very well composed with splendid colors and saturation. The lighting is also amazing as well as perfect POV too.Very well done.TFS.
Keep sharing views and ideas

I like the view across the red tiled rooftops, which are nicely interspersed with the contrasting green of the trees. This leads the eye naturally towards the condominium. A very good pov and a well structured composition.
