thanks a lot for this rather rare view. It looks like Pyongyang is developing a bit. At least in the capital there is some development.
Spectacular horizon and wonderful long term exposure! TFS, best regards, F.

A shot from North Korea, and a fortiori a good one, is definitely an appealing post at least for its rarity and you're certainly some pioneer to venture there
Just before the next one who will post a shot from the moon (but then TE will have to extend its scope, lol !)
Bravo, have a nice evening

ładny nocny widok na miasto,
fajna sceneria z centralnie umieszczoną rzeką,
najbardziej podobają mi się krańce kadru
kolory nieba nad rysującymi się szczytami

That's a relatively rare subject for sure, and definitely a good photo. Interesting descriptive post. Beautiful autumnal sky and atmosphere.

A rare cityscape of Pyongyang, Kasia, and a rarer one that doesn't include the skyline-dominating monstrosity of an unfinished hotel in the center of the city. This shot has a much more industrial feel to it than any I've seen of the city, highlighted by a lovely sunset and a good long exposure to really bring out the city lights and leave some great traffic trails around. I'm impressed you were able to get into the country!

Wow, not something too often seen..it's refreshing to view a picture of North Korea that isn't of the military!? Beautiful tones and nice exposure from this sunset, it gives the city an attractive quality. Thanks for sharing this rare look into the country.

I discovered this among the "Featured destinations" and found to my surprise that I hadn't written about it. You made Pyongyang look like a normal, quite beautiful city. I once made a comparison between Pyongyang and Seoul on Google Earth, where the lack of normal city life in the north was amazingly obvious. But this is absolutely a great view with very well captured evening colours.
