The flatiron building was the first skyscraper in New-York. This picture was taken from the top of the Empire State Building. What caught my eyes is the seemingly total chaotic driving pattern.

That's an amazing photo of the area! so sharp and detailed, and all from miles (and floors...) away!
Very well done!

I have been staring at your photo for a few minutes now. It is so sharp and very very complex. There are so many elements, the gorgeous architecture, the clors of the cars and the ant like people, yet your picture is not overwheming to me. This a great picture full of dimensions, full of sounds full of life. Beautiful.

Nice view of the urban madness. The Flatiron building is very well rendered. The colors of the different buildings are great. Well seen!

Wonderful view from New York! The framing is excellent with those diagonal roads and there are a lot of very sharp details in the traffic. Well done!

Oh, how I like those views of busy New York City from above. I'm also amazed by how sharp and detailed this is, as the Empire State Bldg is 10 blocks north if I remember well. The driving pattern is indeed great, but it's even fun to spot the pedestrians. Excellent shot, Shahar.

Not beeing there yet, but it matches everything I know about, without the usual clichees.
According to the others you were at a great distance, so that makes your shot even more worth, zooming in that way.
Very good DOF, sharp, so one can examine well the thousands of details.
Very well seen and done.

A great view, the geometry makes it dramatic or even confusing in a way. I think it must be the very skew angles between the streets.

Great shot. The Flatiron building looks excellent at this unique angle. The amount of detail is amazing. Thank you for sharing it.

Great and different POV. This is the first time that I have seen an "arial" view of the flat iron building. You have capture its surroundings well. Your notes are good as I didn't realise that it could be seen form the ESB. TFS
