This photo makes midtown look as though it's on a hill. It almost looks like a bigger version of San Francisco.

It's a perspective we're not accustomed to seeing.

You wouldn't know it scrolling through HK photos on here. The New York photo above is another similar shot in the same vein. Being able to see the street and skyline in one shot gives context. It makes the whole photo more relatable as you can picture yourself walking down the street on your way to some other spot in the shot.

Photographing skyscrapers down an avenue from street level to their very top is how you really capture the scale of a skyline. This first photo is of Brickell Avenue in Miami's financial district. In the second one, you can see Brickell Bay Drive buried in the shadows.

Seeing the street and the skyline also gives a sense of scale... an opportunity to realize the shear massiveness of the skyline that looms beyond... and above
