    For many, classic is better, for others; new can't compare. I love NYC because it makes the point that embracing both and combining them harmoniously is not only possible, but a fantastic proposition. Woolworth building 1913. New York by Gehry 2011. The image was taken from very far with a 200mm lens on a2x multiplier; this allows to create compression and make the 2 buildings look like they are next to each other. I used a ND (neutral density filter) to achieve the darkest possible sky.

    The toning and your use of exposure, working with the light in this image are all excellent. I love the detail of the building here that you focused on. It's a nice mix of old and new within the photograph and that works well for this assignment. Cities feature old and new architecture and it's amazing how the clash of styles all works as one.
