Chrysler Building - New York In Miniature


There are a lot of taller buildings in New York City and plenty that are more famous, but one of my favorite skyscrapers is the Chrysler Building. Just something about that art-deco spire. This view from the observation deck of the Empire State Building may not be particularly original, but I enjoy it just the same.

The relatively shallow depth-of-field was created in Photoshop by the masked application of a lens blur filter. The result isn't as "miniature" as some of the other photos I've done like this, but I was attempting to balance the effect without losing too much of the interesting details around the building.
