This image of the top of the Chrysler Building is from the recent Julia Anna Gospodarou workshop in New York. It's also part of my Urbane Series.

The title is Chrysler Building, and the caption is:

Liberty redux
With eyes brightly lighted -
gargoyles watching

My intent was for a portrait of the top of the Chrysler Building straight on with shading to show depth. The arched areas at the top of the building have always reminded me of the headpiece on the Statue of Liberty repeated again and again. Also the mental image that I have of the building includes the triangular windows lighted at night. So I wanted to emphasize those windows by making them bright and to emphasize the arches by making them stand out in a repeating way.

The image was made at street level but I used DxO Viewpoint to adjust the perspective and make the image appear as if it had been made from approximately the same height.
