A beautiful black and white shot, and your view emphasizes the height of this immense building perfectly well. I am a big fan of skyscrapers and this is a beauty.
Thanks for sharing

As a real NYC fan, I love this image. Glad You did it in B&W, it really suits the texture of the construction. Great perspective and cropping. I will shoot it next time there!
