Icarus,is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus. Icarus and his father attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. Icarus' father warns him first of complacency and then of hubris, asking that he not fly too low nor too high because the sea's dampness would clog, and the sun's heat would melt his wings. Icarus ignored instructions not to fly too close to the sun, and the melting wax caused him to fall into the sea where he drowned. This tragic theme of failed ambition contains similarities to that of Phaëthon

I like this angle very much, a great and creative way to view these towering structures. They have great light willing across them, and the sky behind is beautiful.
I do like your note, but don't think I really understand the connection. Are these buildings empty, or abandoned? If so, they look remarkably well . as a fan of big buildings, I like these very much but as a resident of a bankrupt country, I know the ugliness of failed construction too.
Thanks for sharing.

Ciao Federico ,
lo slancio di questi grattacieli verso il cielo ha un'effetto stupefacente, la loro struttura fornisce invece un grandissimo impatto grafico ed una particolarissima luce alla scena.
bello il POV con splendida luce,
Un caro abbraccio,

I really like this composition which is playing with the diagonals.

It's a fine tilted shot to good effect that echoes the wonderful architectures seen from low view point and the use of wide angle lens has exaggerated the perspective with oodles of impact, enhanced by the strong contrasts to dark sky. A grand image well illuminated in warm light and exquisite detail and sharpness, Well done, Congrats

Very interesting skyscrapers!
Truly attractive architecture picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, contrasts, chosen pov and composition are all excellent and really pleased me!
I'm not quite sure I understood your note... but, I might have! Better no comment here, because you already wrote that way...
TFS - congrats,
