Fifth Avenue Building

Here’s another image of the Flatiron building in Manhattan and as the title suggests it’s located on 5th Avenue. I wanted to give this image a vintage, turn of the century postcard look keeping with the 1902 date of completion of the building. The gold street clock has been there since 1909 and I wanted to go back in time (no pun intended) to what a photograph might have looked like if it was taken back then.

I converted the image to monochrome using OnOne’s Perfect Black and White and then Perfect Effects for the postcard border.

Click on the image to enlarge (it really does look better) or to Purchase a Print.
