The second part of my previous sunset photo with a lower sun position and consequently with different light and colours. The other difference is the longer focal length to have more details of that modern islamic architecture.

Bonjour mon ami Attila,
Merci de nous offrir une si belle vue d’Ashgabat ! Une ville étonnante par son architecture. La photo a été prise entre chien et loup, la beauté générale est parfaitement mise en valeur.
Bravo et félicitations.
alentejo (1954) 2006-08-22 4:07
Congratulation for given us that magic sunset. Very sharpness shot and colorful as well. The sun seems to belong to the buildings.
Angshu (51174) 2006-08-22 4:14
I was in fact waiting for this second sunset shot...this is quite superb with the rows of highrises against the pastel coloured sky & the sun perfectly positioned, as if held in place by the two buildings. Marvellous
clnaef (6289) 2006-08-22 4:16
Belle photo d'ambiance et teinte douce et agréable.
alekpet (4661) 2006-08-22 4:26
I like this one better. Very unique skyscrapers. Lovely architecture, never seen before you decided to share your view. Placement of the sun is also great, I like how you found enough light to illuminate those buildings.
all the best, Aleks
kiara (410) 2006-08-22 4:41
The sunset is fantastic! I like the picture, nut i don't know if it is my impression or the horizon is not completely straight?
naxius (16685) 2006-08-22 5:27
Impressive the way the four buildings are so similar, it's like they are guarding the city.
The sun in the background complete the photograph.
riclopes (35567) 2006-08-22 5:48
Hi Attila, yes I remember well the first one. What an interesting diferent result here. I love the way you placed the sun right bettween the buildings and although I like more of a dramatic atmosphere, with stronger contrasts and colors this is quite nice to show us the details of the modern islamic architecture, as explained in the note. The POV is great and the composition is very well balanced. Very well done!
P-S-I-G (25532) 2006-08-22 6:10
Great shot. I like colors in the sky.
Good POV chosen. Well taken and composed.

The next excellent shot from Ashgabat. I like this contrst between this bloody sunset and this sovietised architecture. Good panoramic view and nice perspective of the street.
markstaples (15670) 2006-08-22 8:25
A nice composition with beautiful delicate pastel colours. The image is of a marvellous quality too. Well done.
Deepforest (9260) 2006-08-22 9:47
the next amazing sunset in pastel colours... I like perspective and composition. Well done my friend.
vinicio (23415) 2006-08-22 12:48
Enigmatica ed anche agghiacciante Attila, hai scelto il momento giusto per la luce e i colori e il risultato č bello, complimenti, non pensavo che in quelle zone ci fossero costruzioni moderne cosi ricche e monumentali.
jhm (122458) 2006-08-22 13:23
I find this picture more beautiful than your previous, the colours and light are of very lovely quality, this one of the more beautiful late evening or night picture on TE. Splendid contrasts too!
Thanks for sharing.
t0mmm1 (5440) 2006-08-22 13:27
Ciao Attila, (scusami perche' ti ho chiamato con il cognome fin'ora)
bellissima la scena. La composizione e' proprio cercata, si vede da come hai messo esattamente il sole tra due grattacieli. Come ti ho gia' scritto nella versione precedente, mi piace l'architettura moderna che rispechia la tradizione del paese. Gran bel lavoro!
Budapestman (82620) 2006-08-22 15:07
Méltó folytatása ez a fotó a korábbinak! Közelebbről és világosabb fényviszonyok között talán még jobban érzékelhető, hogy a város leginkább egy hatalmas és díszes építészeti mutatványhoz hasonlít! Nagyon jól kaptad el a hangulatot, a fákkal borított sötét előtér szépen kiemeli az épületek és az égbolt ragyogását! A város és a fényviszonyok egészen különleges atmoszférát kölcsönöznek a képnek! Ismét egy kitűnő fotó, Gratulálok!
Szép képeket és Napot!
balatrek (7447) 2006-08-22 18:41
Fantástica imagen, los colores son bellísimos, me gustan las luces, el Sol parece luchar por dejarse mostrar entre los edificios, buen trabajo amigo.
Giorgio (11263) 2006-08-23 2:12

Dragonheart (8414) 2006-08-23 2:34
WOW! excellent capture, good framing, I love the beautiful sunset against the modern city. Very calm atmosphere, EXCELLENT!
Thanks for sharing
PixelTerror (0) 2006-08-23 4:32
Wow, excellent PoV, view and timing, there's kinda research of a neo islamo-stalinist style there, with old empires inspiration as well considering the numerous columns, the leading prospekt, the overall warm glow from the sky and the positioning of the sun between the tower, my hat off Mr Attila, a great one !
Have a nice day,
berek (31921) 2006-08-23 4:43
what a wonderful sun with beautiful sky colours. very good point of view. congratulations. have a nice day.
my overall evaluation -> :-)))
kermit350 (9012) 2006-08-23 5:28
Hello Attila, the sky creates a marvellous rather tropical environment, this photo catch at the best time is excellent, very good balance between this range of your pastel and and these buildings which benefit thus from a superb lighting, the foreground is perfectly visible what increasing the depth of the image, sincerely
chrisnet (21086) 2006-08-23 8:59
Very beautiful shot Attila, very well composed and seen.
I like this evening atmosphere,the colors of the sky are stunning,the sun is very impressive.
A great shot!
Best regards from France
josepmarin (55051) 2006-08-23 12:53
your previous photo on this place already I liked, but this one is relaxing and calm when being the lowest sun and to give smooth and pink tones to the image, that they contrast very well with the white buildings.
The color of the sky is amazing and very pretty, the atmosphere of the traffic in the street you have caught it very well, and I like the touch darker than they give the trees in foreground.
The sun between the buildings is splendid.
siolaw (37568) 2006-08-23 13:46
Nice urban sunset with the sun fitting exactly between the towers... Great POV, colors, compo and light
Fis2 (73114) 2006-08-23 14:15
Curious composition and colours. I like the contrast and sharpness. Good work.
leo61 (0) 2006-08-23 16:16
Like your last post from this POv with that view a verry goo shot.
Nice view at the strange buildings wit the pilars and nice domes and the 5 buildings behind.You managed the light verry well and the pink/orange colors of the sky are fantastic.Good work again.
Graal (88908) 2006-08-24 2:38

Really fascinatic scene.All looks so wonderful and well captured.From the amazing sunset between the buildings to the traffic in streets giving life to the whole scene.Also very good colors and handle of light.
Great stuff,fine personal work!
rosaline (0) 2006-08-25 4:49
Excellent shot and an impressive capture of the disc. I love the colour of the sky and the position you've captured the sun. The light has a strange errie texture to it, which draws my attention. I also like the framing of the five tower blocks, too. Great work.
Buin (42084) 2006-08-25 12:33
What a view! An architecture like from a fairy tale - in a wonderful mysterious light and colours. It's good that you show this combined with the street life there. Without this one could take it for a vision. Very impressive!
Thank you for showing this!
Greetings from coool and rainy Germany!
arjun_das (1851) 2006-08-26 3:36

Very nice compositions with these beautiful buildings and the sun in the landscape. The trees and the street also increase the quality of this nice photo.
Tue (25798) 2006-10-17 13:46
Great capture of this sunset, wonderful to see the sun just between two buildings. The light conditions were very interesting here and create a fine atmosphere. Also the colours are very pleasant. Good work and thanks for sharing!
boka (798) 2006-10-29 13:42
It looks like Las Vegas.
abulafia (4900) 2006-12-29 20:17
Wonderful colors in this sunset.
I like that you caught the sun itself between the two buildings.
Very nice architecture, nicely detailed.

Wandering_Dan (3449) 2007-10-13 14:14
Very nice positioning of the sun! I also like the ethereal quality of the light.
magiqa (1292) 2007-10-22 13:30
You have succeeded much better than I to catch the beautiful architecture in Ashagabat! Congratulations.
Jakab (3861) 2007-10-23 15:27
Ez viszont lenyűgöző kép és eredeti architektúra. Érdekes, hogy a legvadabb hatalmi téboly mellett is szoktak születni maradandó művek - na jó, üzemzavar mindenütt előfordul. Nagyon elkaptad a pillanatot, amikor a színek ilyen szép játékot produkáltak. (Egy percnél aligha tarthatott tovább.) Érdemes volt kivárni!
picardo (2459) 2008-01-04 3:42
You have so many great picture in your gallery that is difficult to choose one.. but this picture is excellent!. Colors and details are fantastic. Exposition is great. Excellent work
Vato_Law (12718) 2008-01-07 13:38
Indeed it's not a view we can immediately associate to islamic architecture but looking more to the buildings and specially to their tops we can find some traces of islamice architecture.
This big fire ball is just beautiful appearing in the middle of those towers and lightning up the scene.
Also the big construction in the middle of the photo with that huge dome is another great add on to your composition, that and those huge avenues that crosses vertically the photo.
