Early Morning about 40 minutes before sunrise, SunTrust Plaza (right) Bank of America Plaza (middle), Atlanta, Georgia, America - The SunTrust Plaza (the headquarters for Atlanta's World Trade Center) is a 869 foot skyscraper built in 1992, and has been the second-tallest building in Atlanta since then, the tallest being the Bank of America Plaza at 1023 feet. I took this from the Westin Peachtree Hotel, a gorgeous hotel offering amazing views of downtown and beyond.
Railway Tracks, Stone Mountain (located about 16 miles from downtown Atlanta) Georgia, America - Stone Mountain Park is Georgia's most popular attraction, it boasts the largest bas-relief sculpture in the world, featuring Confederate Civil War generals Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson. These railway tracks are located on the path down towards the carving. The mountain itself is 1,686 feet in elevation. There is a Skyride, a Swiss-built cable car, which takes you up, passes by the carving on the way. Originally the trees were green, I changed them to yellow in Photoshop using Nik/Google Color Efex 4, foliage.
The Confederate Memorial Carving located at Stone Mountain, Atlanta, Georgia, America. is believed to be the highest relief sculpture in the world, located 400 feet off the ground. The enormous carving was completed in 1972 and depicts Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Gens. Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson in relief. The relief itself measures 76 by 158 feet and is recessed 42 feet into the mountain. The summit of the mountain (1,686 feet) can be reached by foot on the west side of the mountain or by the cable car.
Downtown Atlanta from North Avenue, Atlanta, Georgia, America - I photographed this during the blue hour at North Avenue NW bridge near the Varsity drive-thru, overlooking the I85, there's a small hole in the chain-fence someone has kindly cut out. I shoot light-trails by first creating 3 RAW exposures bracketed (usually -3 -1 +1) then I change to a single shot, putting the settings at whatever gives the shutter 30 seconds, then merge the two together afterwards in Photoshop. The tallest building here is the SunTrust, the large cylindrical one on the right is the Westin Peachtree.
