June 2011 header – In the city

I was somewhat loathe to get rid of last month’s header. I did so enjoy the purpleness of it. However, a new month means a new design and this is what I have got.

My aim with this one was to take something that I attempted to do in the previous batch of headers and do it better.

So, last time I used a skyline sillhouette: City Skyline

Nice enough, but I can see exactly how it came together and could probably replicate it in seconds. This took a lot more tweaking, and I like it better.

My only regret is that it’s a little dark for June. Now we are (supposedly) in summer, it should probably be a bit lighter, and this header would work better for September or October. However, it is what it is.

I still can’t tell which city it is though.

  1. At first glane, I want to say New York City, but the slated-roof (Citigroup Centre) Building that is a quarter of the distance from the Empire State Building on the side opposite of the Chrysler Building is not there. Assuming the building to the the left of the “M” is the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building is at the “T” of Chrisitne then the slanted roof building should be around the n and e of Christine. Of Course you would have to take his shot from above or very close to the Chrysler building to get this perspective. It might even hide the slanted roof buidling. Going CSI:NY, here A bit of trig, and a few songs from “The Who” and we can determine the location of the photo-shooter….. 😛
