Thanks, Cristof! Yes, all of these photos were taken by me. They are all supposed to be the photos of the thread starter here in the Urban Showcase. I just started doing this last summer after not owning a camera in 25 years, but I've studied skyscraper architecture and history as a hobby for well over 30 years, so I had an idea of how I wanted to shoot the Miami skyline once I got a camera. I've made prints of many of photos to sell and I'm having business cards made.

QuantumX -- you should sell your pics as postcard for a living...you'd make a fortune!

I'm not sure how to get started in that. I've looked into it, but people don't return my phones calls. It's like me trying to get permission from Chrysalis to use the music I want for my video concept. They won't communicate with me. I'm going to ask a few more people, like the guy making posters and business cards for me, about how people get started in that sort of thing.

No, I've never been much into nite skyline shots. Rober2010 is good at that. He is another one of the Miami forum photographers. He actually has more formal training than me doing night skyline pictures and sometimes using a telephoto lens for his day shots.

These shots from the 12th Avenue bridge are great for showing how dense the city is getting. Still, they are not as awesome as this scene is in real life as you walk across the 12th Avenue bridge.

Taking recognizable photographs of people at street level can be dangerous, to them as well as to you. This dude in the first photograph kind of brought that home to me. Besides that, as I've said over and over again in my pictures thread, I am interested in street level only to the degree that I am attempting to capture the scale of a skyscraper from the ground to the top. Aside from this first photograph, these are all photographs of people in this thread.

Thanks, but I like this one better because of the colors. It kind of shocked me getting something this good through my windshield, but I decided to take advantage of being stuck in traffic leaving Miami Beach. The cruiseships going out along the MacArthur Causeway always create a bit of a traffic jam.
