Nicely executed.
I like this shot because it is a raw image and doesn't appear to have any post processing done to it, and i really like city shots especially at dusk or night time.

this is quite an amazing perspective, not the first here on IFL, but always a treat to see. However there are a couple things that i notice when looking at this. One being a fair amount of grain throughout but doesn't really stand out too much due to the business of the photo so i can live with that. The other is the illusion that the buildings are crooked. Im just curious if you noticed this too when you were setting up for the shot and if there is even anything that could be done to correct it.
But those are minor things that don't take much away from the overall quality of this photo IMO.
Sorry, but Taipei 101 still remains my favorite city shot :P

Great image, great place. I love seeing pictures of New York from such high places. I'm adding this to my windows 7 slideshow background.

You should've made the Empire State building centered.

Awesome shot. But, Does anyone else think it's hilarious that they listed "No Tripod" under gear?


That said. It's an insanely beautiful picture.

I love all the lights from all the windows, and it's a great shot overall.

It does feel a little crooked for some reason, and I wish the horizon were higher.
