[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
With regard to the advertisement almost at the top of the building, it was obvious which title I should choose in this image. With its many advertisements and different looks and decorated balconies, the building was quite sexy in itself. The photo was taken at Union Square, not far from the Town Hall and the statue of Ho Chi Mihn.

Hello Erling

I've been in HCMC several times and will visit it again soon, but this kind of advertizing is new to me as well. I assume the people living in the appartments get paid for the ads, or is it just the owners of the building? Also it's kind of intriguing to go and figure out if there is any kind of link between the ad and the people actually living there. Hmmm, I can only imagine...

Hej Erling,
Et udmærket billede med den høje bygning og alle dens altaner, som giver så mange forskellige detaljer til billedet. Især de mange butiks- og restaurantsskilte er meget interessante at se.

Hello Erling,

What a idea for show an advertisement on the balcony, nice extra income.
What a lovely panorama image.
Congratulations for this wonderful picture.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Smart tenants, Erling, they take advantage of the higher balconies to earn extra income.
Well spotted and posted.
Good evening,

Hello Erling, a fascinating picture, it leaves us with a lot of questions!
The tight crop that concentrates on the balconies, and does not show us the whole building works really well. It could be an abstract work of art!
I like the touch of green from the leaves in the foreground.
Regards Jean.

a fine composition of these little boxes, lots to look at in this interesting scene

Hello Erling, Fantastic composition. Amazing that the advertisements are on high floors of this building. I like straight lines. Sexy forever is the best, no doubt, I like also the girl sitting on the balcony.

KInd regards MAlgo

Hi Erling

So we can choose the room we want!? very strict building but many colored adverts!

Hej Erling,
Var det detta de kämpade för under så många år? Att få reklam för privata kapitalistiska företag på sina balkonger! Jag vet vilka som vann kriget, men jag undrar vilka som vann freden. :-) Det är en utomordentlig bild, precis vad jag hade velat ta själv, full av lustiga och rent av bisarra detaljer. En riktigt originell och skarpsynt blick in i det vietnamesiska samhället.

Hi Erling
oh man...this is just TOO good :)
Looking at this makes me want to visit this city right now.
love the final product with this tight crop. Is it a combination of stores and apartments which families live in?
I wonder how this looks at night with all the lights :)
awesome. cheers

Génial cadrage sur cet édifice quel effet graphique avec tous ces balcons et ces divers propriétaires et ces pancartes affiches publicitaires ces lampes rouge même un café avec la terrasse et des personnes et la pub pour le sex superbe
Bravo et amitié

Ciao Erling
eccellente taglio, le forme geometriche si ripetono uniformemente, ma ogni tassello di questa scacchiera offre una soluzione diversa, colori e dettagli differenti per ogni balcone.
Bel colpo, simpatico titolo.

Hello Erling, very good photograph of the interesting building full of ads, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. Very good and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.

Good night and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from the south of Spain.

Hello Erling,
It is remarkable that every terrace of the apartment block looks so different from the others.
A bit of a bizarre combination but certainly eye-catching.
The 'Sexy forever' apartment has been given an adapted colour.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Erling,
I remember when I was a child in my village, people used to get paid to have advertisement posters on the walls of their houses ! I don’t know why it stopped afterwards.
But obviously, the idea is very strong in Hochi minh.
Quite a drab apartment building, where the adverts bring a little colour (and income, I suppose)
I see one apartment has chosen to have its own decoration of red balls.
Great, interesting post, and I like the graphic effect.
TFS and kind regards.

Hello, Erling!

That's an interesting façade of a building you show us here! The tight framing makes it possible to see a lot of curious details, like the "sexy forever" sign and some colorful lamps and flags that make the photo more attractive! Excellent job!
