Here is the new Bank of America Tower on 6th Ave. & 42nd St. again. Yesterday I saw it in a different light with the help of my circular polarizer. For this image I took full advantage of the polarizer which made the blue sky appear blue-black. I liked contrast between it and the sun lit facade. The shadow on the left is cast by the Grace Building across the street.

Exif: F Number: 10, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 10/2500 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 400, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 70.00 mm, Model: NIKON D200
