New York City - architectural shooters paradise! Everywhere you go there are cool buildings and angles. With the lighting present when I was on scene, I feel this one works better in B&W. I used Topaz Black and White Effects, specifically the High Contrast II preset, the a bit of Protect adjustments. This treatment does give me the feel of a cold Winter day, which it was!

I'm going to do a weeklong series of architecture images, beginning with this one of a very famous building. The Empire State building. As I was standing in front of it and composing my shot, this bird just flew right into frame.
One of the interesting things about Empire State is that it looks so different from various points of view. Another interesting thing is that the uncle of one of my best friends owned this building. Twice!
