Atlas Shrugged?

    Newer Older

    Seven-exposure HDR processed with Photomatix. I used a wide angle lens and I tried to be as close to the floor as it was possible to give it a more dramatic feel. The Atlas is an art deco statue in the Rockefeller complex in New York City. It is often associated to Ayn Rand (one of my favourite writers) and the Objectivism Movement.

      At first I thought it was a screenshot from Bioshock. Well done!

      Very good photo. I love it!

      (Bioshock was a video game with a heavily art deco setting. Unfortunately, the game is also anti-ideology and it's main thesis is that there is no set of principles which do not lead to disaster. I did not play it for long because it's not a very good game.)
