Perth City by larsen Perth City by larsen
This photograph was shot a couple of weeks back. This morning firemen finally got a huge fire threatening eastern suburbs under control - 16,ooo hectars of land was already lost. The smoke from that fire is what created the thick, orange blanket of fog you see laying over the city. Though I didn't care much for the smell, the smoke gave the light an extra warm tone this morning.

Hello.

I’ve featured this piece in my news article [link] . I hope you don’t mind it and enjoy the article, too.

I’m sorry if, by posting this comment on more of your photos, I’m spamming your inbox – I am aware that some deviants were featured numerous times, but want to be clear on what exactly I posted there. :)

This is an amazing shot; the colors are perfect with the lighting of the golden hours, the composition is flawless and well complemented by the wonderful black framing. :clap: I don't know how I missed this one before!

Well, I know what you mean, but to us it's good because the colours are great and also the water-exotic vegetation-water-skyscrapers composition is very compelling and refreshing.

And lol why do you even mind if we keep faving it?

Frankly, because that image is 4 years old, and I don't do landscapes anymore. It's cool that people like it, but I'd much rather have feedback on my more recent work.

I have the original around here somewhere though, maybe I'll remove that airbrushing some day :)

Is it something you could or would just take down? It made me sad; it looked like you took a can of red spray paint to your otherwise lovely shot, haha.
