Port City Development – or Destruction !!

These are some shots I took of the Port City Development – attempts to ‘land fill’ the ocean!

There is a huge controversy behind this project which was done by the Rajapakse regime without any Impact Assessment. Who needs EIA’s when money beckons?

I do not find any beauty in these pictures Β – destruction cannot be beautiful !!

For those who may be interested, also adding the ‘vicinity’ of the Port which is in the heart of Colombo as at present.

    They say the best zoom lens is your legs. You just walk upto your subject and remove all other distractions in the image and tell the viewer “look, this is my subject”. I can see its been cropped.
    Tell me how do you like this picture

      You are sooooo funny πŸ™‚ and right !!!.
      Ok will try using my legs to go in much closer instead of sitting in my car LOL.
      But how would I get the expanse of the original green and the destruction in the distance marring the skyline which I wanted to pick up? Do any of the pictures show this?
      OK it was a hazy day … will try legs and sun and see how it goes.
      Muchas gracias senor
      BTW none were cropped I presented ‘as is’ to get your opinion on composition πŸ™‚

        Well that is a good question. If you want to show the contrasts, you need a wider vision. You just have to be careful about what all things you are including in your frame. Cut the unwanted stuff and include the things you want.
        De nada πŸ˜€
        Well then you must be using the Digital zoom for the maximum zoom πŸ˜€

          yes I did use Digital zoon but have found out since then that it does not make sense as you tend to crop out more than you wish.
          focusing so I get everything I want into frame is key I guess. Many thanks for the advise and taking time to comment. πŸ™‚ ❣

          Yes, cropping out at framing itself is a better idea.
          Yes you get the point right. It is always my pleasure to help πŸ™‚
