Excellent time exposure with wide angle effects creating leading lines all over the place. I also love the breaking of the rules by placing the horizon in the center of the frame which actually works quite well in this image. Anytime someone can pull this off I'll give them two thumbs up for their insight, a third thumb if I had one.
Dara, you are a truly gifted photographer. This picture would be great without the cloud and the river effects, but those effects are what make it truly great.
Why does the smoke from the smokestacks (distant center) appear to be blowing a different direction from the wind?
So beautiful. The wide angle really makes this shot and brings out the driving lines and colors. I think it illuminates the true character of the city.

Great lines that emphasize the the dynamic of the photograph and show the viewer details of the city. Well done. My best from Slovenia, Rok Dolnicar - http://www.rok-dolnicar.blogspot.com/
This is a beautiful shot that highlights Moscow. I love all your work! I see the world through a different eye when I look at your photos! Wonderful!! I hope to see many more featured in the future, for everyone to enjoy!
I love this shot, and the composition of the sky being mirrored in the water below. The elements add a glossiness to the image.
@Jean Kauffman Jean, I didn't correct this photo except colors, contrast and lens distortion. The smoke from the smokestacks was blowing in the same direction as you can see on photo. Thanks for quastion.
@Sasho Pehlev thanks! 100 seconds
