Title Freedom Tower
Description Looking up at the Freedom Tower with a wide angle lens. Because of the geometry of the building (sides are alternating triangular and rectangular), this shot looking up a triangular side makes the building look almost infinitely tall. An older building nearby adds some interesting contrast.

This tower is located at Ground Zero in Manhattan.

I think it's a great shot. Can you explain to me why you used that fstop? I'm still an amatuer.

I ... think you're focused on the building, and you purposely wanted everything Kind of in focus but not Too much.

Just trying to figure it out, that's all. Thanks.
