I think Park Avenue photographs so much better than it looks in real life. The gleaming glass office towers tend to look pretty drab, especially in full daylight. I discussed this earlier here. This is, I think, what the architects were aiming at when they developed this style. So even though I do not much like the style in real life, I am drawn to come back here again and again for photographs.
Of course it helps to take the image right around dawn. This was my first photo excursion with the Nikon 24mm PC-E tilt-shift lens. I made myself use it without engaging either the tilt or shift functions for the first half-hour or so. I wanted to get to know the lens, and I knew that once I started I would become a tilt-shift fool. More evidence of that later.
