Hi Jaycee, Nice different image with the plastic on the building..kinda like a new toy to open.
18 May 2009 5:10am
@Ken: yes -- a new beginning of sorts!
Amazing!!! So light up above and yet so dark below!!! I have never been to such a large city and I always imagine there is not much light at ground level!! Superb perspective!!
18 May 2009 5:45am
@Linerberry: thanks Liners!! yes -- there are many places that have subdued lighting -- but there is so much glass and reflective materials, there is always some sort of light at the lower levels... it is wondrous to behold!! :) xx
Beautiful sky. It is like you are in a canyon of buildings. Must make you long for the wide open spaces.
18 May 2009 6:06am
@Marion: thanks Marion!!! well i live out of the main part of the city a ways where we have lost of sky -- so when i am downtown i am ok with the small angles of sky that are often visible up and between the buildings... all those pieces of sky make me feel dreamy!!! :)
The city imprisons the man... Fortunately, the glance escapes !
18 May 2009 6:40am
@dan: merci a toi Dan!!! :) yes -- the glance escapes upwards!!! :)
Nice one Jaycee, love the silhouette of what looks to be a billboard. I don't think i could stay there for too long it looks claustraphobic!

@MaryB: cheers Mary -- yes this was a small alley way... i just loved the tight compression -- but then being able to look up and see a vast magnificent sky above all else!! :)
Nice flow from bright to dark here. A conceptual image. Well done!

@Mirko Herzner: thanks much Mirko!! :)
Love all these tones of grey under a blue skye and the perspective... Huge and great ! :)
18 May 2009 7:58am
@Aurore: cheers Aurore!!! :) thanks!
Love the blue sky and the clouds, great perspective.
18 May 2009 8:09am
The financial district wearing a mourning veil - iconic!
18 May 2009 8:27am
@MadScientist: YES!! :) but i also see it as 'under repair'... so hopefully there will be a new beginning soon!! :)
Nice shot DJ. Like the wrapped buildings gauzy net curtain finish
18 May 2009 10:48am
@grouser: thanks mate!! and yes -- me too -- caught my eye right away!!! :)
lazy on a sunday afternoon????
18 May 2009 12:55pm
@callemie: cheers Callemie!! and yes -- it was a lovely Sunday stroll!! :) xxx
I like the perspective.
18 May 2009 1:11pm
Nice perspective Jaycee. The angle and the light works so well!
18 May 2009 1:24pm
@bluechameleon: cheers BC!! thanks!!
Beautiful how you do in this picture
with the sky, the cloud and the bulding.
18 May 2009 1:26pm
@P-TER: thanks Peter!!
is this part B&W and part colored? whatever it is, amazing composition you made here! and the play of light and shadow is beautiful! great work JC! :)
@shoti: thanks mate! yes -- i have been messing around with different mixes of b/w and color... :) i love the starkness of the b/w for large skyscrapers, with a tint of color for added depth!
Very Very beautiful
18 May 2009 1:31pm
Fantastic play with colors on this image!
18 May 2009 2:14pm
@Cricket-Tammy: thank you!! :)
jaycee, i love this - the angle is great, as is the light/shadow. i like the wrapped building. i posted a shot earlier of a hotel near that had been wrapped for renovations. i don't like it as well as this one, but you might find it interesting. i don't know if this is a common practice. i'd never seen it before.
18 May 2009 2:40pm
@grant: thanks Grant!! i have seen this type of covering before and i am not 100% sure why but i think they do it if they need to work on any of the exterior surfaces of the building and it keeps debris from ricocheting into the surrounding areas. i love wrapped buildings too! do you know the artist Christo?
18 May 2009 2:44pm
nice perpective, giant bulding
18 May 2009 2:48pm
Very pretty! I love the lines!
18 May 2009 2:53pm
What a strong compelling image of the cityscape!!! The angle, composition, lighting... and your creative treatment are just brilliant! Super work Jaycee!
18 May 2009 2:54pm
@hugo poon: cheers Hugo!!! this city gives me lots of inspiration -- i just let it guide me!! :)
Upside down vertigo !
18 May 2009 2:58pm
it's like gotham city during the daytime. nice one mate : )
18 May 2009 3:27pm
@peter: thanks mate!! yes -- parts of this city are definitely Gotham!! :)
Nice angle, and great perspective to the sky... at least, we can breath ! :-)
18 May 2009 5:10pm
@zOOm: yes -- a place for escape when everything else gets too heavy!! thanks Florence!! :)
Spectacular!!! Great contrast and fantastic perspective and framing! Well done
18 May 2009 5:23pm
This actually looks like a building opening up its arms to greet one! Superb perspective.
18 May 2009 6:06pm
@dobbino: thanks Rob!! and wow! i never saw like that until you mentioned it!! thank you and a very cool interpretation!! :)
Nice little patch of blue amongst the concrete jungle. On a cloudy day, I guess you really have to photoshop the sky red or green to get some color in NYC :)
18 May 2009 6:23pm
@Howard F.: LOL -- yes, so you have caught on!!! :) cheers to you!!
Nice architectural shot. I really like the light and the composition
18 May 2009 6:40pm
Great composition, really good gritty urban feel to it, nice one.
18 May 2009 6:46pm
@Graham Russon: thanks heaps Graham!! yes -- it is a bit gritty!! :)
Great shot, love the angle and light
18 May 2009 7:20pm
The sky seems to be so faraway!! I could miss it inthose dark valleys of skyscrapers :)
Your photo is so impressive, that I got this kind og feeling !!
18 May 2009 7:43pm
@Leena: thanks Leena!! i am getting used to be being back in the land of skyscrapers!!! :)
Municipal well... Splendid frame !!!
18 May 2009 8:15pm
That box of light with a shadow therein is amazing, I have a feeling of helplessness here.
18 May 2009 9:03pm
Quite surreal with that curtain hanging down!
18 May 2009 9:05pm
The financial district looks somber. Fortunately the sky is a lot more optimistic.
18 May 2009 9:23pm
@António Pires: cheers Antonio!! and yes -- i love the contrast of those two elements!! :)
Love your perspective here. I didn't know what to make of the building covered in wrap as I have never seen such a large building covered like this before. It definitely makes for an interesting capture. I hope the fire escapes are not covered. ;-)
19 May 2009 2:03am
@Steven: cheers Steven!! :) i think they are renovating the building so no one is in there -- a big project!!
Love the shot... though I am sure the buildings really block out the sun...
19 May 2009 2:12am
Cool sky. I like how the light goes to black in the foreground.
19 May 2009 2:16am
Great angle and touch to this photo DJ.
19 May 2009 2:42am
What magnificent shot, in this tangle of palaces, you must raise very eyes to see the sky ! :)
19 May 2009 4:13am
Very good! I like very much the framing. the light and this special sky, Great one!
19 May 2009 4:21am
Nice angles... and a nice light shadow play
19 May 2009 4:56am
Just brilliant. I love shots like this.
19 May 2009 10:36am
The canyons of NYC. Great image.
19 May 2009 5:22pm
Almost forgot, you're New Yorker now. Great shot.
20 May 2009 10:39pm
It is really a man-made dark well..... And the hope is upwards !
21 May 2009 8:48am
22 May 2009 3:57am
