this is even better than your previous post :)
whats so great about this one is how the building in the bottom left is come directly out of the corner - it just makes it easier on the eye for the viewer.
smart composition, and another excellent use of black and white and shadows.
love the sense of height once again.

Good Morning Emmanuel,
A very well chosen pov has produced a photograph resembling the cross on a flag, from these high rise buildings. It is amazing how the perception can change continually from a 3D to a 2D image.
Very well done!
Have a good day,

like the choice of POV and the B&W presentation, which is so effective and dramatic. Love the diagonals here and the superb shapes created by the lampposts. An accomplished execution and impressive presentation.
Have a good week - regards Brian.

I also prefer this second Gotham City photo. I like the thin street lamps that rise alongside the buildings. It is a great POV, one that I have tried to capture here in NYC, but I need a better camera and lenses. The B/W is perfect, and I like the graphism, too.

comme sur tes photos de cette série, je trouve la perspective impressionante,et j'aime beaucoup la croix formée par le ciel au milieu des immeubles.

Excellent, excellent POV!!! The B&W enharces the dramatism.

Salut cher Emmanuel
I love these types of compositions, you did really well here. The B&W is very striking, well contrasted and the image well-exposed. Nice and sharp with good depth of field. Thanks for sharing, have a wonderful day.

Hello Emmanuel - I like the fact that this shot can be read as both a cityscape/architectural shot or as a hard-edged graphic design. Your composition is finely managed and somewhat strangely, the street lamps give me the feeling that they are looking down on me! Scary! Warm regards and thanks for a fascinating and well managed image. Rosemary

Un envol vers les cieux en noir et blanc avec comme "garde-fous" , ces tours impressionnantes qui emplissent la photo de leur présence.
Tout en originalité

This is a fine graphic shot. I very much like the composition - the position and angle of the buildings create a nice frame, the bright clouds further facilitate the focus. The monochrome is a good choice as there is no distraction from the scene. The image is both dynamic and surreal, it makes me feel as if I were spinning around looking up the sky - great effect!
With best wishes,

The title is more than apt for this scene Emmanuel.I find such upward shots really great.Especially in combination with your wide-angle lens and B&W treatment.Very atmospheric composition.
