I don't like heights. I do, however, like photos from heights.
Auckland, looking East, from the Sky Tower, looking towards Tamaki Drive... Take me back there someone. Please.

To the East by =carpetmankent is simply one of the best cityscape dA photographs I have seen. The clear, crisp colours and the ability to see even the most small of details down on the ground make this a perfect example of what can be seen from the sky through a camera lenses. If you have the time, be sure to check the rest of =carpetmankent's gallery - his macros are amazing and surely you won't want to miss them! ( Suggested by lazybutt and Featured by garrit )

Wow, that is one of the clearest and most vibrantly colourful images I've seen from sky tower yet! Nice work! It's funny cos it's almost the exact same angle from the photo I took to create this work: [link]

No. I figured saying it was Auckland was enough. People could look that up in an atlas if they like, but I kinda figured the vast majority of people might know what country Auckland is in.

are you kiding me? most people don't even know their neighbour countries. we were studying Len Lye (he is from New Zealand) and nobody in my class (I study in London, which is supposed to be one of the best places in the world to get educated, and I'm in one of the top universities and nobody even knew where New Zealand is). People in Europe don't know much about Asian, Australia, New Zealand or South America. And I'm on the top of my class and have one the highest results in my exams... so :) people are ignorant about far away stuff. at least i'm quite good with stuff that is close to me.
