Reflections on Government

Reflections on Government, originally uploaded by M. Rosenberg.

This shot was taken a few months ago near City Hall in downtown Philadelphia. The reflection is of City Hall's clock tower with William Penn standing on top. The gentleman's agreement in Philadelphia for many years was that no building could stand taller than the top of Ben Franklin's hat. The first building to break that rule was Liberty Place, which is actually the triangular topped building you can see in the upper left corner of this shot. That's one of the reasons I tried to get the two buildings in the same shot.

This is an HDR image blended from three exposures in Photomatrix. The colors were then adjusted in Photoshop.
