Photographer's Note

I've been looking at this building for about a year now, but up until last Saturday I couldn't come up with anything worth photographing. but that evening I finally saw what I wanted - from a higher vantage point the building seemed detached from the ground and reminded me a scene from "The Chonicles of Amber", where one of the worlds was made up from gently floating rocks. I guess I wanted to show a different New York City, not as crowded as in my yesterday's post.

the building is on the corner of 1st Avenue and 33rd street and overlooks river and Long Island. I find it funny that it seems a bit bent forward, and the only explanation I can find is different reflections in the windows that might create this effect. I used a cir-pol filter, but otherwise the image is pretty much as I saw it, only slight adjustments in curves in levels.
