I used one of my favorite Elements techniques on the above photos. The grunge effect. I love how it gives city photos an edgy character. – Diane

Metropolis was one of the hardest themes for me so far. I don’t really go to big cities often. I think I’m going to put that on my to do list. I live near Miami but I rarely go there and I am sure it is full of hidden gems waiting to be photographed. Time to move out of my hometown comfort zone and start exploring.

This shot was taken from the top of the Empire State Building. I must confess I did not take it. My husband did. As we were in line waiting to go up, I had a huge panic attack thanks to my fear of heights. At the last-minute, I chickened out, put my camera on the lovely green square and said snap some shots for me. Maybe Miami is a good place for me to start. There, buildings aren’t so tall.
