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 :) #10469624

Usman M. Bajwa level-classic 12/18/2012 8:12:55 PM

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!!!
