A picture from the entrance to the Staten Ferry Island, which also happens to be a free way to catch a free glimpse of the Statue of Liberty...Of course, what caught my eyes here were those big letters and the circular-shaped structure on top. I wish I'd taken my 10-20 to catch more of it but sometimes, one has to learn to travel light, otherwise you might get a gentle reminder from your back or knees....ouch....

A well defined and a nicely constructed shot & closeness forces the eye to admire the shapes, lines, shadows and textures with strong graphical effect. The compo is impressive and tonal range really brings out the details superbly and you've managed the warm light well. The little bird is indeed an extra value added bonus. A picture says a lot when looking very closely, Well done. TFS

Je vois que tu n'es pas encore prêt à souffrir pour exprimer ton art ;-)
Sympa le cadrage. Effectivement, il te manque quelques millimètres de focale en moins, mais ça fonctionne déjà très bien comme cela.
J'aime bien la composante bleue dominante avec la subtile touche des néons jaunes pour contrebalancer un peu.

Hi Philippe - outstanding POV! The curvature of the metal here creates a perfect frame, and the letters of the sign spill over it naturally and with great style. There's a nice cool metallic feel to the shot as well, which suits it nicely. A really creative photo, this! Thanks.

Salut cher Phil
An interesting subject, uniquely composed. I like the perspective and how the letters guide the eye in a curve around the frame. The perspective is excellent and you handled the extreme areas of shade and light so well. Thanks for sharing, enjoy your day.

Well spotted here, the curve really brings us into the letters and frames them at the same time, and just happens to point at that little lone bird too.
