This was my final shot taken at the obeservation deck of the Empire State Building. After sprinting up 6 flights of stairs, Dave and I had 30 minutes to sightsee from up above before they kicked everyone out since it was already late in the evening and they were closing the place. I took this one when there was only a handful of people left, instead the usual shoulder to shoulder packed crowd thats up there.

I really like the somber atmosphere of this photo... It feels like a cold and desolate corner. The lights in the skyline look beautiful, though.

Not your typical Empire shot. I like the starkness and emptiness in this photo.
