Shades of Ankara (9th place, City Challenge)

Shades of Ankara (9th place, City Challenge)

Ankara, Turkey

I know this image has some technical problems, but I can't help myself, I just like it :-). We have truly spectacular sunsets here due to the huge amount of pollution. The first full version was criticized by friends as just not quite right, so I tried to reshoot this three nights in a row but can't seem to get the color I saw that first evening and have finally given up due to a lack of free time. Then, to make matters worse, I realized to my horror that I had neglected to make a duplicate image and thus had no original, so I recovered the erased image from my hard drive (amazing, LOL) and came up with this cropped version. Shot from my balcony.
