The high-resolution re-take of my original image “Shanghai Calling“, captured from a rooftop at the Nine-Dragon Intersection in Shanghai, China.
As explained in my blog post, this is the new Phase One 80 megapixel version of my image that has been featured by National Geographic, the Daily Mail and as an award-winner in the SITTP’s Cityscape competition in 2013. Pictured are the city’s famous elevated freeways which tower at some points up to 20 storeys high and are lit up with electric blue LEDs over the weekends and public holidays.
This shot was taken in the lead-up to China’s National Day celebrations during October, when the feel of the city was charged with energy. In the distance, Tomorrow Square, the Oriental Pearl Tower and other iconic buildings – in the foreground, the reality of close-knit home life as tiny apartments seem dwarfed as the skyscrapers tower over them. Printed big, this is an amazing view – look carefully enough, and you might even be able to see what’s on TV…!
