Just going through some images and this one really stood out. Taken from the 43rd floor at sunset, for once the clouds came in and treated us to a great sunset.

Agreed ... a very pleasant twilight / sunset image of the city and the traffic pattern lights make it just that bit more interesting than a 'plain' sunset. I think the result is one you can put into the 'keepers' box :)

It really is a good lens, you should see the full-size image, it’s so sharp edge to edge BUT it’s sooooo heavy!
That’s what you need for architecture work. My main work is commercial real estate - and you need that full edge to edge sharpness.

Good image btw - it lacks a little bit of punch though. I’d lift a bit more shadows out and add some more contrast. It’ll take it. Did you wait around any longer. Once more buildings light up scenes like this really sing

Gorgeous shot, great colours and comp. Might just be me and i am viewing on my mobile but is the leftmost tower leaning into the shot a bit?

It does look darker on the forum and viewed on tablets but the big version looks ok on the laptop.

Yep you’re right Ryan it is leaning a bit I’ll tweak it the weekend.

Real cracker of a shot , beautiful colours and you have balanced the light in the sky and ground level really well , you could have so easily blown some highlights in the buildings and street lights, and as you say sharp as a tack.

Edit looks good but then so did the first version. Think raising the shadows has brought out more of the colours reflected in the buildings.
