@isabel: muito OBRIGADO

Illuci from Hurdegaryp, Netherlands

This is really great! I love the play of light and shadow on the old building in brick red with its typical stairs on the outside, the huge skyscrapers in grey behind it.
Thanks for your comment on my windmill picture. How nice to hear you have been in Leeuwarden! And I'm curious about your presentation because I love windmills and their history. So if you still have some PP-materials or other info then I commend myself politely! I know in Greece you have fantastic mills, I once saw a picture on your blog, you processed it to let it look like a painting, but I'm still curious to the original.
BTW We don't have Starbucks in the Netherlands, and we are heavy coffeedrinkers. They whisper that Starbucks would go bankrupt here when they settle down in our country because we find them too expensive and drink our coffee elsewhere :).

@Illuci: ok Eric I shall mail you a presentation with greek wind mills soon, you are correct about the coffe in there it is too expensive but in Greece they do well! Regards Dimitrios

Cyberpsycho from New York, United States

I could be wrong, but it looks like Eighth or Ninth Avenue in the midtown area. Great shot with fantastic shadows and light, and a wonderful contrast between old and new. Nice work!

I've been to Manhattan many times and I've never seen it look this lovely and clear. The light interspersed on the building really makes this a standout shot.

Pied Crow from Nairobi, Kenya

I was born and raised in Manhattan, and I love this shot. As buildings have gotten taller and taller, a little moment of sunshine is a gift to an old building like this one.
