Nice photos, I have been exploring Miami using street view lately, I was very shocked by the amount of tiny homes, without proper fencing, and poorly paved streets with no guttering. I hope that didnt offend anyone, but i love Miami nonetheless the way it is.

I don't know who is referring to Miami that way these days! That sounds like 25 years ago when I first moved to South Florida.

Thank you! In this shot, I purposely tried to incorporate Met2, BOA, and Plaza on Brickell all into one angle (three buildings over 600 feet tall). I also believe this particular perspective makes Miami look more like a northern town like Boston or Philadelphia. I also feel the same way about this shot below where I purposely incorporated all five of the builidings over 500 feet tall that are visible from this angle. This is one of things I've learned to do from all my years of informal study. I don't think just anybody with the same camera would think to do this along with many of the other shots I've taken. I don't just point and shoot! I NEVER just point and shoot.

I also try to incorporate street level activity in the way that I did here in order to better capture the scale of a skyscraper. It's quite a balancing act judging the distance from a skyscraper you need to be in order to incorporate street level activity and fully capture its scale. When I try to capture the skyline or a cluster of tall buildings, it's always about how many tall buildings I can get into one shot that are not blocked by other buildings. In this way, I try to make the skyline look as powerful and dynamic as it can possibly look.

I really like the beach scene and that angle of Icon Brickell.
