This series of shots was taken from Shanghai’s World Financial Center. The building itself is 492.0 meters (1,614.2 ft) tall and the observation deck is 474 m (1,555 ft) above the ground. Although a challenge to shoot through the ever-present smog in Shanghai and despite the reflections on the windows from the inside lights, I was able to get the shots. The smog in the end provided a diffusion of the city lights for an interesting result.
