taken June 29th, 2012 from Liberty State Park, looking across the Hudson River at the Freedom Tower. Last time I stood here believe it or not was in 1998 when the World Trade Center buildings were still standing there.
Used ipiccy to stablize the colors a bit, clarify, a little sharpness, a little HDR, a little vignette to frame the sides. Interesting result I think – hope you like it.
The original World Trade Center was a complex with seven buildings featuring landmark twin towers in Lower Manhattan, New York City, United States. The complex opened on April 4, 1973, and was destroyed in 2001 in the September 11 attacks. The site is being rebuilt with five new skyscrapers and a memorial to the casualties of the attacks. As of November 2011, only one skyscraper has been completed; the other four are expected to be completed before 2020. One World Trade Center will be the lead building for the new complex, reaching more than 100 stories at its completion. It became the tallest building in New York City on April 30, 2012, and is expected to be finished by 2013. A sixth tower is awaiting confirmation.
