    What is that on the cross?

    This is kind of spooky. I like the effect.

    As far as I know it is just some piece of random metal debris. I’m not sure exactly what type of metal it is, however. The cross is believed to have come from One World Trade Center (WTC1). It was found standing upright by rescue workers in the rubble of 6 World Trade Center (WTC6) two days after the collapse.

    All I did was remove the background from my original photo. I didn’t enhance any of the image of the cross itself.

    I had to push my lens up against a construction fence in order to get this photo. The site was mostly boarded up at the time and it was not easy finding an opening to view the site.
