Man, insane photos. I wonder how much touch up there was in post for these. These couldn't have just been straight out of camera?

I feel that the tree photo is not Mumbai. Shop signs seem to be in Arabic. And the taxis that run there don't have that lighted indicator on the top like that either. Erroneous location tags?

Amazing photos!

Has anyone else noticed that the 5th shot isn't Moscow though and is actually Norway?
Maybe it's where the photographer is from?

Agreed. Some amazing photography, and really unique.

@GeoStructural I think the balconies one is all about the detail (and depth of detail), given its night time and the limited light sources aren’t giving widespread illumination.

Absolutely gorgeous photos. Interesting to have two winners from Moscow.

There is a joke I would insert if this were a PRSI topic....
Actually, 3!

Absolutely beautiful shots. Although dedicated cameras still win, you need to get higher up on that echelon to beat what iPhones can now do. It’s amazing how phone-based camera systems have really arrived, from professional-quality photography to filmmaking.
