Pretty incredible! Could you feel the building move at all? Makes me want to see that last Mission Impossible movie again! Great night shot from the stratosphere :)

Thanks for your kind comments everyone.

Patti and Chris, I did not feel the building swaying at all, I was just focusing hard to get my tripod out of the way from the many visitors as even at night it was pretty busy up there. And Chris, yes I did watch the Ghost Protocol again and it sure was even more interesting!!!

Whoa, I applaud you for getting this shot without vertigo, Usman, and for your unusual take on the theme, with the yellow rivers of the traffic and the bright green lights. Nicely done.
