*Runner-Up*“I took this at the 'Top of the Rock' in New York City, looking out towards the Empire State Building, during 'Earth Hour 2009' – when lots of different corporations and buildings and icons around the world agreed to switch off their lights for an hour. I made the image with a tilt-shift lens, and I used one of the binocular stands installed on the viewing platform to steady the camera.
