Three Photo Composite

This is a three photo composite from a walk through Midtown the other morning.  I thought it had an interesting look, and wanted to share the process.  Anytime I see something that has texture, I shoot it.  You just never know what you can use it for.  When I saw this incredibly dusty window, I knew it would make a great layer.  Next, I came across Lord and Taylor on 5th avenue and saw this Mannequin creating a shadow from the angle of the sun.  I shot that and kept walking.  Somewhere near Grand Central I used a 50mm to photograph the reflection of buildings on a shiny silver pole.  I twisted the lens out of focus to make it a bit more interesting.  All three photos were layered in CS4 to create the image below.
