Still on the Flatiron Building today in this the fifth part of my New York City series…You can scroll back to see the other four parts, if you wish. I feature shots of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline.

Because a lot of the joy of looking at the Flatiron Building is in the details, I wanted to show them to you closer up. This was taken with my 70-200 mm zoom, at 70mm. It has been cropped.

Before I cropped it, I took three different exposures into Photomatix and processed them as a High Dynamic Range (HDR) photograph, but with a natural look. Then I converted one to monochrome, leaving a hint of blue.

I may print this one, or one like it. Just curious, which version do you prefer?

Thanks so much for helping me out today — and I really appreciate all your kind and thoughtful comments on this series. I read and smile at every single one!

  1. I was no help to you with your poll – I really can’t decide which one I like better. I usually lean toward black and white for architecture, but your processing leaves the color one fabulous too!

  2. What an imposing building! I definitely prefer the coloured one because the stonework is such a lovely honey colour and those little stylized flowers around the edge show up so well in the colour. The pale blue sky is a perfect finish to the golden stone. Colour gives a softer image. You must print the one you like the best and not be swayed by other’s opinions!

Let's connect...I love to read your thoughts...thanks for visiting!
