One of the highrises in NYC seemed to be reaching the sky. I took a picture of it. It was amazing how that manmade structure blended into the clouds.

A very unique perspective for this capture, I really like the angle. I have said it on here before about the benefits that can be had when one looks up (as I often become complacent in my surroundings - haha). The two (clouds and building) really intermingle with one another. I have seen similar shots where the photographer sandwiched two slides together to achieve this type of shot, but you nailed it in one. Very intersting formation!

a beautiful image. I'm glad that I don't have to work up there in the sky. Nevertheless I love these buildings which seem to have no limits.
A good and optimistic image for this day.

Que pasa Mike?
Nice one, it surprised me at the begining - I thought that the clouds are so low that the skyscraper reached them. It took me a while to undersand that it's a reflection.
Take care and see you tonight

this is very amazing architectural photo. I like clouds and their reflections too much. Great job my friend.

This is a very good photo. I like the effect the reflections make - it looks like the clouds are going through the building. Very simple but great geometric shot. Well done.

Great shot here of the building. The thing I like the reflection of the clouds on it. Well done. TFS!

The mirrored glass does create an strange effect as though it is part of the clouds and atmosphere. I imagine the intent of the architect was to blend in with the surroundings? In any event, a creative look at your views of NYC. Nicley done.
