I can remember when the finger of God fell. This is amazing to see; a picture that you took of it, probably still on film. Thanks for sharing this!
This was a landmark well known to all of us. Well captured with a good lighting arrangement.

I do remember this well known landmark and the news reports from when it collapsed.
You have a very good use of light, providing you with a great silhouette.
TFS and for the memories!
