So is that Brickell Bay Drive in the first Miami photo? Is it cement?

No, that's Brickell Bay Drive in the shadows at the bottom center of the second photo, this photo. I have a 24 x 36 inch framed enlargement standing up in my living room now and the contrast at that size makes a lot more impact.

Just like most cities, if you take city skylines from a body of water that can see the skyline, they are usually PRETTY AMAZING!
