Really impressive ! I also like the way you composed it.
I wonder how the condominium meetings are... I guess they have some discussions to take decisions...

A bizarre full-on photo of daily life in Singapore. It tells me a lot about other people's lives and is a good scan. TFS, Marlene

Hi Gert, that looks like a horrible way to live, at least from the outside. Exclusion of any other elements other than the one building works well in focusing the mind on what it is like. well done. Cheers, Steve

This is really a weird picture. I used the wheel on the mouse to scroll downwards and this step-wise change of perspective made the picture look alive! I had to to repeat several times with "normal" slow scrolling with the scroll bar to convince myself that the photo was not moving around. Really a peculiar picture!

Very good shot! Really impressive. You will not believe but here in Poland you can find lots of this kind, 16 floor buildings from comunism time. They are renovating, painting but they still looks horrible...Here we call them 'plank'.

a gloomy perspective and an oppresive atmosphere. Your composition has an abstract quality and the tridimensional touch of the hanging clothes is a real plus.
Have a nice day

This is very nostalgic to me taken 35years ago, a close up view of housing apartment block probably somewhere in china town area near the city centre. This HDB (Housing and Development Board) block is long gone now and replaced with newly design buildings in tenderm with urban redevelopment program. This is where majority of the citizens almost 85%, live due scarcity of land and I am very proud of HDB which have vast knowledge and experience in developing public housing since 1959 and still function today in modern Singapore. Great shot worth achiving. With your permission may I save to my hard drive. TQ

This is a wonderful image, I really love how the building fills the whole frame and makes for such a busy shot. The sense of the size of this tower is very apparent from your capture. Nice!!
