Great picture Quantum! It really shows the breadth of the Miami skyline. Very good and rarely seen angle.

Thanks, JuanPaulo. I've posted this one before, but it is one of those that lends itself better to the larger size, especially with the Miami Beach and Sunny Isles Beach skylines beyond. I also cropped this to banner size and this was my last banner for the website. I think it was my best banner considering all I was able to get into the shot. In a few years, the Miami skyline is going to look even more huge with what is already under construction right now.

We could easily tell if the photos had been properly creditted with a link back to the original flickr page as I'm sure the photographer left an explanation there.

I have a private message in to him about this even though he says they're his.

Thanks for noticing that I stated the images are mine.

The building on the foreground is part of Getty Museum in Malibu. Two other skyline shots are also taken from Getty Museum, that place offers the best skyline view of LA (Santa Monica, Long Beach, DTLA, Hollywood).

You can find those images on my Flickr account, but the ones I posted here are re-edited and posted on a personal Flickr acc.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/kelifornia/

If you don't know about the Griffith Observatory in Hollywood, you might be interested. The photo with the pink sunset is taken from there as well! These two museums are really what makes me love LA so much.

Thanks! Is that an outdoor eating area? Would love to go there one day. Never did visit the Getty Museum when I lived there. Flickr wants us to post using the BBCode. You know, when you click on the curved arrow in the bottom right? You select BBCode and copy and paste from there. Click on one of my photos and scroll to the right. You'll see the curved arrow. Click on that and select the BBCode to copy and past.

Yep, it's a cafeteria. I recommend that you go there on a Saturday when it opens til night. I'd stay at Getty for over 6 hours there; 3 hours of visiting the art galleries and 3 hours of taking night photos. It's where people get views of Century City with DTLA in the background. Going to start visiting again during winter when the atmosphere is very clean!!

The Getty Villa (another beautiful campus) doesn't offer views, but there is a hiking trail right next to it that offers the most amazing view of DTLA, Century City, and the beach cities (refer to the beach photo in my set).

And learned my lesson on BBC, just I didn't want to link the photos to my personal acc.

I think there's a way to make some photo public while keeping the rest private.

Yes, there is. You can change the privacy setting for each individual photo.

Found this view of Toronto photo on reddit. Sorry if it is too big, I can't resize it.

^Great pic! It seems like they have been repainting those black buildings for the last 5 years now.
