Photo of the Week: light & dark

I'm having a hard time picking a photo this week, so I'm just going to go with popular consensus on this one (ie: which photo has received the most views, comments, and favorites via my flickr account).  The winner is:

light & dark

That's Chicago's Trump Tower with the Mies van der Rohe designed IBM Building.  A nice architectural contrast, I think, as both are clad in glass and steel but are clearly from different eras-- Trump is just a few years old, where as IBM was build in 1969.

I lost a little bit of highlight detail in this one.  I left that as is in post processing, adjusting the shadows slightly to further exaggerate the contrast between the buildings.

Nice one. I can see both these buildings from the windows of my office -- I'm so used to how they look from here that this shot feels like a different pair of buildings.
