New York, my first time

From my megalomania point of view, I thought 'the big city' existed of a lot of huge buildings, but in fact they weren't that high.
If you know that the Empire State Building is just the 14th in the rankings of tallest buildings, since the boom of big Asian cities (see list: Emporis.com).

Anyway, let's kick off with this one:



There are not that much 'modern' (read: glass) buildings out there.
On the other hand, there's lots of Art Deco, and that's a lust for the eye as well.
Watch these:

Thanks !

Not really a great photographer, just great buildings that make it easy to get nice pictures

When I arrived there I saw postcards of the Flatiron building, I watched how they did the composition and actually just copied the same idea and made a photo like that too:



That way, it's not that difficult

it's a tribute to your shots that they are not dissimilar to these:
