This is a shot of the clock which sits above the Park Avenue entrance to the Grand Central Terminal area. The clock belongs to the old New York Central Building, now called the Helmsley Building. The building was built in 1929 as the New York Central Building and was designed by the same architects as Grand Central Terminal. The building has a unique feature, in that traffic enters and exits the Park Avenue Viaduct through the building itself.
Processing of the image was fairly simple. The image is almost monochrome to begin with. I created the final image by blending a sepia toned layer with the original color layer, using about 75% of the sepia layer. I wanted to have just a hint of color, especially in the hands of the clock.
