The Flatiron Building is one of my favourite New York landmarks. Other people obviously feel the same way because photographing it without ending up with a shot that’s been done thousands of times before is distinctly tricky. Hopefully, though, I’ve managed to produce something a bit different here. Rather than using a wide angle lens and take the picture from right underneath the building, I walked a couple of blocks north and shot a section using a long telephoto lens. This allowed me to compress the perspective in the shot and create a dramatic, geometric composition. I hope you like it. It’s definitely one of my favourite shots from the last 10 years.
