[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The top of 1 PPG Place, the tallest in a group of fancifully designed office buildings made most of large reflective glass panes. It was completed in 1983. It is the headquarters of PPG Industries. PPG, formerly known as "Pittsburgh Plate Glass" and now a major international glass, coatings and chemicals company, was first founded in 1883 as a glass manufacturer. Taken just after sunset.

they look like rockets ready to be launched.
simply a nice capture against a beautiful sky, Sandy.


Hello Sandy,
Talk about verticals here! I am impressed by all those straight lines running perfectly parallel to the frame , it sure works very fine here ,well if you corrected distortion in a program i'll be grateful to know which one it is that you use , a perfect angle indeed,

The corners look like lead pencils standing up. Interestigf building. TFS
Warm regards

You're taking us on a great tour through Pittsburgh, Sandy! A very nice stop here, too!
Perhaps you could give more depth to the sky by adding a gradient instead of the flat color...just a wild thought! ;)

yeah, i recognized these "peaks" already in the miniature - the wonderful ppg-building in
pittsburgh; just was there last september, such an amazing place. too bad is was there during
the day - the lighting at night seems to be very cool. great capture & best wishes, thor.

Hi Sandy...beautiful shot...great details and light...nice work.
