Thank you!  Getting those shots is incredibly difficult and requires a special lens designed for architecture.  You can't get back far enough to capture the entire buildings in one shot so these are multiple shots pieced together.   I've never seen a shot of the Pantlind from the front that includes the entire building so I'm glad I was able to do it.  The shot makes it look like the building is so much further away from the side of the street from where the photo was taken.
