I'd previously read that Ulsan was a dirty, heavily polluted industrial town, with lots of smog. So this was a pleasant surprise, when I exited the bus terminal.

Ulsan is the Detroit or Pittsburgh of South Korea, with lots of mega car factories, & shipyards, scattered around the city. I've cloned out the more annoying wires far right. That's the Lotte World Department store Ferris wheel, in the top left corner.

Hi Chris,

A high quality image, love the deep blue sky enhanced by the polarizer. There is good sharpness and depth. Happy to see Ulsan in a photo as I was watching an indie Koran film (rented fron Netflix but forgot the title) featuring this city. Cheers.

Hi Chris,

A nice daily life scene in a place far away (for me). Excellent composition as always! I hope things remain peaceful over there (in light of the naval skirmish).

Best regards,

Hello Chris! Wonderful modern architecture, amazing sky-scrapers, nice scene, very fine people, amazing sky. Superb colours. Splendid effect. Well done!

Hello Chris,

Not a place that I have heard of before!
You have shown it with amazing clarity and with a lovely polarised backcloth. The details are sharp from a well chosen dof.
It is amazingly smog free; not at all what you had imagined.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Ciao Chris

the light here enchants me too, all
details are visible and the colors become
most beautiful and pleasant to look.
Super emphasis on architecture 2 building
the background, I'm sure will be highlighted in this avenue.
Greetings my friend ...

Hi Chris,
Looks like a very modern city
judging from the architecture
of the buildings. City looks
clean and well kept. Good clarity.
Nice presentation.
Best regards.

I like this one - I'm a fan of 'street shots' just taking the viewer into a part of the world they might not otherwise see. Composition sits well and the light and saturation are, as usual, impeccably managed.
