You just brought back a memory of our then 4 year old daughter saying repeatedly in a clear voice as we went up in the elevator "It's a lonnngggg way downnnnn!" putting smiles on some peoples faces.

I probably would have cropped off a little of the bottom eliminating the rubbish lying around. Nice to see some greenery though. At least you were lucky enough to be able to take a view through the glass instead of being sandwiched between people.

I like this pic a lot, love the colors in the park. Wish the ledge with the trash was not visible.

Good use of color. I would have preferred a wider lens for the pic.

This picture would be much better with the bottom cropped.

Nice colours down the park. That sunlit spot really catches my eye. A pity you couldn't show more of the tower legs.

IMO, a tighter crop at the bottom, to remove all the trash and excess building edges would have really helped this image.

I have this fear and it sparked the fear in me. My legs tingle with heights. :)

Yep, good shot. I couldn't do it. But would this convey fear to someone without acrophobia?

Show the feet at the bottom and use zoom blur and this would be perfect! Still well done!
