!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Looking Up at a Skyscraper

This challenge closed about 5 years ago.

The Challenge

Just that…. standing on a street looking up at a skyscraper in the same street…

No city skylines across water/landmass/several streets etc, no looking down from a skyscraper. No buildings under 12 storeys high. No observation towers eg CN, Eiffel Tower etc or other structures that are not the normal idea of skyscraper buildings such as church spires, radio masts and minarets. (This list is not exhaustive!!)

If you are on the same street as the skyscraper we would like it. See the full example image for details (as we can only get landscape avatars, clicking will see the portrait version)


As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the photoshop challenge group. Thanks!

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids, reptiles or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Note: Please don’t be disheartened if your image is removed from the challenge, you can always ask us why that happened, but the usual answer starts with the challenge description – please read it :-)
