New York's famous Empire State Building
The construction of the Empire State Building began in 1930 and was completed within 14 months. This commercial office tower, skyscraper has 103 floors and 6,500 windows. The construction system is steel frame, stone cladding of urban low-key Art Deco style. The Empire State Building is famous for the illumination of its upper floors. The Observatory on the 86th floor offers panoramic views of Manhattan and beyond.
This is the front side of the building, which is flatter and less visually interesting; the building is tan/brown in color.

Very nice shot and an excellent POV. This angle give a very nice perspective to the height of this famous building, with an impressive sky on the background.
Very well done.

Well you chose your timing for this perfectly, great sky. I like the unusual angle very much, it gives a real sense of height and the symmetry make it quite a graphical shot.

Zgradata e mozebi najpoznatata sto postoi, no pogledot e odlicen.
Oblacite i perspektivata samo ja naglasuvaat nejzinata visina.
This building is maybe the most famuos of all in the world, but the view is unique.
These clouds and the POV just give great sense of its height.

Hi Anastazija, the POV is great and the contrast beetween the rusty colours of the building against this deep blue sky is really impressive.
Keep posting :)

super simple, classical, but you bring it out perfectly, thanks to the reflection of the windows that binds the structure with the sky around. Bravo, we can take so many of these shots, then back home, bof!, but not here!
