Stephen, a great image - wonderful clarity and I like the mix of nice vertical and horizontal lines - hopefully by photographing the financial district in the light you might wake it up a little bit!!

@Scott Schilling: Hey Scott, thanks. And bad news on the financial dawgs - they've been fully awake as they played their game of unregulated greed with our monies - it is now (hopefully) the people who are awaking.

Marie LC from Voiron, France

Light is beautiful. I like contrast between ancient and modern architecture

You must be standing on a rooftop! Love your point-of-view. Wonderful cityscape!!!

@Marcie: Thanks for the visit and kind words. This found me on the tenth floor of the Sutter-Stockton parking garage, the largest parking structure in San Francisco. There are another two floors above parts of the structure. I love driving the corkscrew ramps going up and down. Weeeeeee....

Looks quiet - must be before everyone is up. I like the morning lighting anad the little splash of red off to the left.

@willow: That splash is a Budweiser advertisement and - yes - it was very early and a weekend.

Perfect light. nice angle to shoot from...gives the sense that the financial district is out of reach!

26 Jan 2009 7:24pm

@dogilicious: I love your observation - absolutely all of the financial districts everywhere are definitely 'out of reach' !

Rui from Leiria, Portugal

Interesting POV. I like the reflections on the buildings' windows. Very good light... I suppose early morning?
Nice work Stephen!

@Rui: Indeed, Rui - this was taken about 30 minutes after sunrise.

i really like this composition, with the older, lower, and to my eye more interesting building in the center of it all.
