IMO the criticisms of the photographer are not unlike the criticisms of the tower. People who don't like modernism criticizing a modernist tower. People who don't like B&W criticizing B&W. Ok, and, what's the point?
FYI, I just filmed something in black & white.

The point is that we're all on this forum to share info and opinions about architecture and the photos thereof. I have stated my opinion. It comes from a place of knowledge and experience.

Of course you're welcome to your opinion.

This building is obviously a skyline changer and will be an indelible part of the shape of the skyline for decades to come, if not longer. I appreciate it for what it is... I just wish it were something a little more special architecturally. If you look at is as a silhouette, it's a box. If you look at ESB, Chrsyler and others as silhouettes, they are unmistakeably those buildings. That's what I wish this were.

Although today, the perimeter spandrel beams were poured, marking the highest elevation for the tower, the actual roof slab has yet to be poured. There is work taking place within the exterior forms out of view (mass damper, etc). Looking at the 56 Street cam, rebar is still evident on the work deck for the roof slab to be poured.

In my view, until the actual roof slab is poured, one cannot officially claim that the tower is topped-out, regardless of the ceremony which took place on October 10, or that the perimeter is at full-height.
