Obviously the Flatiron building. I was hoping for a different shot, with the nearby park in as well, but ended up liking the wide angle perspective more. A better sky would have helped, but weather did not cooperate...

Here's an outtake:

I much appreciate the nice comments. I also felt that the little bit of street was important as it gave context to the image, and many thanks for the nice words on the B&W conversion. Unfortunately, not a top 10 like Art predicted, but comments like this are worth more than a couple of decimals ;)

Fabulous angle. For all the modern marvels visible elsewhere, the building still stands as a reminder of a bygone era.

A little more blur of the cab would have been nice. A more interesting sky would have been great as well. Good choice of subject.

Great shot, perhaps even better for this challenge if cropped tighter.

I have always liked this building, you captured it well in B & W

the perspective of this throws me off a bit. the building looks pretty much parallel all the way up but you have other buildings creeping in the corners.

I've seen a shot of this building before, though looking down at it rather than up. This is also a nice perspective and I like the fact you can see street detail as well as some motion in the cars. Gives it a real city like feel! 7.
