That marble finish is too beautiful to be corrupted by humans. I really like your last shot, even though there are a couple of them leaving. If you are able to close your lens down far enough and use ND filters you can increase your shooting time enough to eliminate people as long as they are moving.

Thanks for the info on ND filters. I just looked it up and found that according to wikipedia, "Neutral Density Filters are often used to achieve motion blur effects with slow shutter speeds".

I've heard it all too often that the Chrysler Building is the more attractive building compared to Empire State Building. According to destination360.com, "In a recent survey conducted by New York’s Skyscraper Museum, the Chrysler Building was chosen as the overwhelming favorite building among New Yorkers who work in the building and design industry." (http://www.destination360.com/north-...ysler-building)

I hope these pictures give you some idea why.


#2. Chrysler Building Directory and trivia.


#3. Lobby Ceiling. I put my camera on the floor lying face up to take this shot.


#4. One of three entrance doors. The lobby layout is triangular.



Thank you for looking! C&C welcome.
#2-#4 are spot on in exposure. Good job
The 1st image seems underexposed
