Extremely difficult place to get this S-curve. I had to hang my tripod fully extended over the sidewall ( and hold very tight for few minutes in bulk mode)
Didn't expect to get the blue. Many thanks for the high votes everyone.
I really like Leo's comment. There are indeed all 3 colors from the ribbons in this picture. The blue was from some pimped scooters with blue led lights on it.
I took many pictures that evening, with tilted an not tilted horizon, with more city view, but couldn't get that S driving the viewer in the picture. BTW, while taking those pictures, a scooter crashed in the right under turn. His scooter was total loss, he was ok. I took pictures of the crash

Your hard work paid off! I usually dislike tilts, but it sure works in this case.

Haha!! I've been getting annoyed with all of the slanted horizons in recent shots. But as soon as I saw this, I thought: "Someone who knows how to tilt a horizon with a purpose, instead of by mistake." It adds a lot to it, and does give a sense of movement and dizziness. It wouldn't have been nearly as interesting without it!

Way to go out and get a shot! Congrats on the blue!

I wonder if you used a wide angle, would of maybe scoped more of the city in the background, still a competent image, in my top picks.

Very cool, but why the slanted horizon?
