    Solid finish. I'd love to see the same shot once the towers are completed to compare the two. I thought the same as Steve about the top of the unfinished tower but on second thought think there is something intriguing about the whole presentation. I see and experienced eye in this image. Congrats!

    elliott- Thanks for that comment. I don't think any of us who have been there, or stood on the observation deck of the towers, will ever quite recover from what happened. I was there with my wife and youngest son 25 years ago.

    brings some memories.... can't believe it has been so long.... maybe 40 years ago, late at night, a few of us sneaked into the construction site to experience the awe of the twin towers. things were different then.... philippe petit went a bit further and tight rope walked between the two towers. i'm sure security is a top priority now.

this one looks beautiful. great capture fitting of the challenge.
high in my favorites.

    What an impressive building - you've captured it beautifully. The play of light on the glass facade really brings out the detail.

    Nice image! I would think it would be difficult to get the exposure right with all that glass and reflections. Nice Job, and thanks for sharing this!

    I like the steely blue and silver look and the clean geometric lines.

    A good shot, there are parts of this image that I really like and parts that don't work for me. The entire left side of 1WTC is great, intricate details shown off by strong side lighting, nice range of blues and greys that pull the eye upward. But I don't like the rest of sky, the top of the building, or the companion building, they just seem flat and detract from where I want to look.

    good use of the perspective. I dont think NY is ever going to be completed

    Normally I like skies with more interest. (clouds, birds, something other than straight blue). However, in this setting I think the clean sky emphasizes the fresh new building. Nice work!
