Taipei2016Dec: Night view from the top of Taipei 101, once the tallest building in the world.

I used the Night mode in the Huawei Mate 9 camera for this, pressing the smartphone against the metal grills at the rooftop of the skyscraper, because of the long exposure (20sec, f2.2, ISO100) and strong winds, plus I didn’t have a tripod with me.

The phablet took multiple shots and merged them into the final JPEG output, which is posted here without any postedits (except for cropping and resizing).

The horizon looks crooked, but the photo is straight because the buildings are all vertical and the phone was aligned against the vertical metal grills it was pressed against.
