Always thought that the Chavis Park angle was the best money shot of downtown. Almost looks impressive. Highlights most of our buildings. Will continue to get better as Skyhouse, Edison office and Charter Square are built. Very hard angle to shoot, unless of course, you have a 24′ tripod and insane photography skills. Perfect shot as usual Matt.
The Chavis Park shot is the best, because the angle captures the best of Raleigh’s height to density ratio. I would really love to see some wide angle shots showcasing the entire skyline including the other end of downtown with the SECU tower, Quorom, Clarion and West at North.
NEW MONEY SHOT= CHAVIS!! This should be on wikipedia and anything else for that matter. Its 2013, I feel that change is good. We should change the “money shot”. Some cities dont have a “money shot”….why do WE need a particular “money shot”?? I remember visiting friends in Chavis Heights when it was a public housing complex, and I sure do remember the skyline being alot smaller.
