ericrocio Nice up and coming skyline. Seems like theres lots of new buildings being bult.. Nice job WasabiHoney. 5/5  +2
WasabiHoney Thank you, it's nice to see someone look beyond the photo's low quality :-)  +1
Arsalan 5/5 from Pakistan. I didn't know that Lebanon is so much developed and was under impression that it is like Palestine.  +2
WasabiHoney As a general rule the futher you move away from Metro Beirut the less developed it is. Even Beirut has its share of slums in some areas.  
madrasi7777 I amazed that inspite of the violence this city keeps bouncing back. 3/5  +1
WasabiHoney OK guys, first of all sorry for the quality of the photo, but I don't think it warrants so many 1/5. Yes I took it with a not so good digital camera (in 2015), but not everyone has the money to buy an expensive professional camera you know. Then you should know the city's air is often hazy due to high humidity levsls and intense car traffic, which degrades the quality of the photos even more. Nevertheless I wanted to show a side of the city rarely featured even on forums like SSC, so many thanks to all of you who still gave the picture a good rating :-)  +13
testdrive Thanks for sharing, your enthusiasm is nice. I remember when it was called the Paris of the Mediterranean. Good to see it on the rebound.  +1
skyduster It's not just the quality of the picture, it's also the poor composition, and the odd location you chose to take the picture from. Beirut's a great city, it shouldn't be hard to come up with a new picture that's fat better.  
skyduster *far better  
WasabiHoney It's a photo and not a painting I came up with, so it makes no sense to talk about composition lol I must say that I don't live in Beirut, otherwise I would have explored the city to find other spots from which to take a better photo. We just happened to be driving on that road, and I asked the driver to stop and got down to take a picture.

WZZ048 Beautiful city, shitty picture, rude ppl with ATTITUDE.  
manuelmonge 1/5 that pic was taken with a 2005 digital camera? come on i dont get why people put 5/5 to that ¬¬  +5
skyduster It's got nothing to to do with technology. Anyone can take a crappy picture with the best camera.  
Suseł When was this picture taken?  
WasabiHoney In 2015.  
Sunkid And now for something completely different...  
skyduster Great city. Not the best picture.  +1
