I often joke with my friend from New York that Austin is starting to look like a real city. For all its growth, downtown Austin is not super big. Certainly compared to a lot of other places in the world. But, as the underutilized surface parking transforms into high rises, the increased density is starting to look significant.
With loads of moderately tall buildings, in close proximity, the canyon effect of glass and steel is most prevalent on 2nd Street. Previously, shots like this where hard to create in Austin. Any tall buildings where spread apart.
At a 24mm equivalent, this is not super-wide, but the Cinematics effect that I’ve used a lot with the Canon G7X Mark II, works well in this case. It pulls in about 25% more content from both sides, which critically adds to the effect.
