I keep coming back to this shot with the black Jag(uar), and can't shake off the impression of a filmset street in a studio backlot. As if there were no back to everything, and more light than you'd expect coming from behind camera left.
Richard, you are exactly right. The buildings really do have a false, enhanced facade to make them look taller than they are. I have no idea why. The corrugated metal makes for a weird brightness, and there actually *is* an unusual amount of light coming in from the left because there is a parking lot rather than multi-story buildings on the opposite side of the street.
