Taipei, Taiwan ROC

Taipei 101 (台北101 / 臺北101) is a landmark skyscraper located in the Xinyi District, a business and shopping area in Taipei, Taiwan. It was officially the world’s tallest building in 2004 until the opening of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai in 2010.

Bad weather prevailed except for one particular day. Really wanted to do a shot during sunset but clouds were still covering the top portion of 101. When the clouds finally cleared I grabbed the Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II (Thanks, Edward) mounted it on the EOS 7D. Attached the camera to a ball head tripod and turned off Image Stabilizer (IS). Took 4 frames to make sure everything was sharp. The image below is 1 of them.

Exif: f/8, 13 secs, ISO 100, 70mm and RAW file. RAW file to converted to tif file in Canon’s DPP and further processed in Photoshop CS5. Here is a street view of Taipei 101 from last year.
