    Every city is a “City of lights” with long exposure

    • ahmadnowaz

      True, with better ISO value and long shutter exposure even dark sky can be made bright.

    • Afaaq

      I agree… I live in karachi and have been to nearly all these spots where the pictures were taken from. The long exposure and post processing is artificially hiding the dark spots seen everywhere due to load shedding. All I see in real life are dim lights and a lot of garbage on the roads. We have a long way to go for this to be a city of lights.

    Karachi deserve more then these shiny photos. There is NO Public Transport System at all. Karachi should have a Public Transport System Like Mumbai, Tokoyo, London and NY City. But unfortunately PPP Governments only their to eat as much as money as they can. #ShameOnPPP
