city daily photo blog, theme day, januray 2008, best photo of 2007, south mumbai aerial photograph

the 1st day of every month, is theme day at city daily photo blog . the theme for january 2008 is "best photo of the year 2007".

i chose this photo, originally posted on 27th november 2007: flying high
didn't choose it as much for the photography skill per se, but rather for the subject: the sheer number of spots that this photo captures. for a complete description of the photo see flying high

some other photographs that i judge to be close winners are here:
all set, and ready to go; city lights; on the median and rock and water


photoblogs from 118 other cities are participating in this theme too. click the links to travel around the world, what better way to spend the first day of the new year. happy 2008!

What a great shot for your "Best of" selection! I know I need to get to Mumbai one day, and I'm sure to look at your photos first. Happy 2008!

Jilly said...

this is a stunning aerial shot. So much to see and so clear.

Thanks so much for comments on Monte Carlo DP. I haven't got Photoshop and am not sure I'd know quite what to do if I had it. I use Picasa but I suppose that can't do the same thing? Thanks a lot. Probably time I took a look at Photoshop. i know so many use it.

Happy new Year to you.

Hyderabad Daily Photo said...

wow, that is a great photo. Indeed a great selection. I read your description of it under the original posting and it is wonderful. I am surprised that you were able to shoot this photo on a commercial flight - I mean it has a lot of details.

Wish you a happy New Year!

Wow-wow-wow!!! What an incredible view!
If you put it on Flickr, you could add little notes and navigate us through all the details. Kind of a geography crash course. ;)
A very Happy New Year from New York City! May 2008 bring you lots of satisfaction and hapiness. And many more breathtaking views!

Happy new year and long life to your blog.

Joy said...

Wow, great shot. It must have been such a challenge taking this photo.

I look forward to visiting your blog more often this 2008. And you're welcome to mine, too! For some reason, my link was not included in the participating blogs for the 1st of January 2008 theme day. Sorry I wasn't able to visit your blog sooner. I was in transit the whole of yesterday. I am now back in Norwich after the most fantabulous time at home in Manila.

Happy New Year to you and everyone you hold dear!
