3 shot panoramic.

Just a few minutes before taking this image I was on the busy and almost claustrophobic streets of mid-town Manhattan, with car horns beeping, crowds of people everywhere and huge skyscrapers all around blocking out the sky as best they could. And then, after a very quick (and impressive) elevator ride I was high above the chaos, noise and almost all of the surrounding buildings rooftops. It’s safe to say, after spending several days walking around the busy streets of New York, stepping out of the elevator on to the Rockefellers rooftop observation decks 67 floors above the city, is almost like stepping in to another world!

And as an aside, this image has special meaning to me as it was on this trip that my girlfriend became my fiancee, by saying yes to my proposal :)
