    This photo is a miracle! I love the reflections of the clouds and the other buildings in the glass of the new tower. And I love the angle of the tower. It’s all so crisp and surreal. WOW!

    This one reminds me of the early 20th Century Industrial photography, with the reflections and progressive building. I love the distorted perspective and how it looks both formidable and optimistic at the same time. Well done!

    Wonderful perspective. I particularly like the fact that the reflected images and the buildings behind are on the same plane so that where the reflected glass cityscape ends and reality begins is not immediately recognizable. The angle creates an almost twisted profile as though the building is marching forward, onward and upward. Great shot!

    Great photo here, Ellen! The reflections on the building look like a faux painting, and the fact that you got three building reflections off of one is an amazing feat of the camera’s triumph over physical constraints.

    Aha! I didn’t realize this was One World Trade Center. It’s a beautiful photo and the finished building is going to be superb!
