Default World's Highest Buildings - Almost.

Part of a series of shots I'm still processing from the just passed Chinese National Day holiday.

Pearl Oriental Tower, Shanghai (actually higher than the Jinmao below but not by occupied floors/viewing platform).

The WFC (left - 2nd highest building in the world) and Jinmao (right - 5th highest building in the world). On the right you can just about see the construction of what will be the new 2nd highest building in the world (but only for about 3 months until they finish the one in Guangzhou) !!

Pentax : 15 Ltd, 77 Ltd, 43/1.9 Ltd, Cosina 55/1.2, DA*300/4, Contax Zeiss Distagon 28/2.8, Raynox 150/250, AFA x1.7, Metz 50 af1.

Nikon : D800, D600, Sigma 500/4.5, Sigma 120-300/2.8, Zeiss Distagon ZF2 - 21/2.8, Zeiss Distagon ZF2 - 35/2.0, Nikkor 85/1.8G, Sigma 50/1.4. Nikon x1.4 TC, Sigma x2.0 TC

G'day ff

I like 'em mate ~ excellent use of colour & perspective
the 1st one looks very dramatic with the moving car headlights too

Indeed some amazingly sharp & detailed images, with unique perspectives. Great lens in some very capable hands!

Great photos Kevin. I almost get dizzy looking at the third (straight-up) shot.

Great shots Kevin, one more set to add to my list but to shoot downtown Detroit at night I have to leave the county and go to Canada. Good reason to go to the Windsor Casino

Impressive photos. I think I like the first best, as you have kept the sky darker, avoiding the reddish background of the others.
Just to pick nits a bit, these are the tallest buildings, not the highest. The highest, I think, is somewhere in Nepal, and is only a couple stories tall.
