Hong Kong also has a great blade runner vibe.

Blade Runner (The Miami 2011 Edition)

I chose Miami because its skyline is composed mostly of 21st architecture and numerous high-rise condos. Living vertically is the wave of the future with the earth's human population increasing exponentially and living high above ground has long been a futuristic concept.

These two photos from Club 50 remind me so much of Los Angeles with its sheets of light.

Houston's Galleria Area is probably the most futuristic neighborhood of any US city I have been in.

A lot of people like Epirito Santo. It makes an interesting photographic subject day and night. This first photo below I was able to get while doing some freelance work for the construction company. Imagine what this shot would look like at night. I tried to make arrangements with the building manager to shoot this perspective after sunset, but he seems to be ignoring me. The property manager for the Miami Tower gave me a flat out "No." I have a helicopter shoot planned for next month at sunset. Maybe I can get him to hover over this one in particular to get some good night aerials of it.

Why? CITIC is just OK, considering it was built in last century, its style is good enough, though in nowadays! What ruins Guangzhou's skyline is those LED truely! It seems that Guangzhou wants to compete with Disney land? or something else? It's really ridiculous, wastful, light polutioned and ugly!

What ruins CITIC the most is its ugly huge red logo on top of the building, secondly its the typical tacky chinese last century glass used for cladding.. and yea i dont know why china goes after neon light so much, i rather have them to turn on all office light like NY..

that sort of train has been existed since centuries ago, look around the world. I don't find it any futuristic shadow at all, perhaps i might call it futuristic when it can fly all over the city or something.
