"The Ice Cream Sundae Building"

This Art Deco designed landmark is regarded as a classic New York skyscraper. When built in 1932 it was the tallest building in the city. At night the top looks like an ice cream sundae with a cherry on top, floating above Wall Street. I zoomed in the maximum so the shot was very soft focus, this with the atmosphere causing it to glow – made the image look more like an impressionist painting than a photograph. No detail at all, just broad strokes.
