The Corning Tower is a 42 stories modern office building on the south-east corner of the Empire State Plaza with an observation deck on its top floor. This picture show the previously presented New York State Capitol and its surrounding as seen from the observation deck. The long building with the row of columns behind the Capitol is the State Education Building, the modern building on the left is Legislative Offices Building, and the one on the right is the Justice Building. There are lovely parks on both the east and the west side of the Capitol. The whole area has a spacious, peaceful atmosphere. Most of the traffic between the building is in an underground concourse, connecting all of the offices associated with government business.

This is an excellent shot in a sharp downward view to present us this nice architecture. The colors and sharpness makes it an image of high quality.

Great POV looking down at the plaza. Once again you captured a lovely mix of architectural styles. The capitol building is beautiful, but I also like the long colonnade of the State Education Building. Nice, warm lighting in this photo, too.

A real pleasure to see this scene from up high like this, and a perfect compliment to your previous posting of this very impressive place. In this scene, we see more of the two buildings in front, and its a strange contrast of styles with those in front being so much more austere and strict in their style. I have no idea how you managed to capture this with so few people, but it looks brilliant!
All the best

Very good shot looking down from the Corning Tower. The photo shows beautiful architecture building that we don't usually see from the ground level. Great quality of colors, light and sharpness.
Have a nice weekend,
