The slope of the Grace Building, overlooking Bryant Park in NYC, is fabulous, for those who haven't seen it. I got lucky with the clouds.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments.

I just noticed this is in your top five - you've been doing a great job of rotating new ones into your top row the past year. Very impressive!

I think she's got it. Spectacularly successful shot of the building I worked in for 9 years and shot many times, but this works best because it uses those churning clouds like the wake of a massive ship through a cosmic sea.

Good job. A pretty armonious ascension and very graphical. My only quibble, and here I am being completely honest and an horrible nitpicker, is that, while I found the wave like vertical vertigo impressive and so moving, I don't necessarily find it graceful. It could also be graceful, but that's really not the main feeling, and this was actually my first impression when seeing the photograph. Then, composition, choice of light and cloudscape, DOF and BW all are competent and excellent. The idea of using the writing is brilliant.. Mmmm.. 9

Penny, that you?

Oh the W. R. Grace Building. I actually wanted to use this building as my entry but I couldn't get to 42nd st..

Lovely B&W. Very nicely done. Hope this scores well!
