While people are admiring the view from the top of Rockefeller Centre, with The empire State Building as a dominating object, I am looking at them. This man stood like this for a long, long time, longing for something or dreaming, or?

Yes, you are right, changing the point of view, focusing more on the people enjoying the view, it is changing the story shared by the photo.
Good setting of the contrast, what is very important for B&W shots.

the image is nicely balanced with the OOF BG not intruding upon the main subject,the man appears to be completely at ease.

I really like the way you have approached this shot Goran. Excellent light management, B&W conversion and a creative interpretation of the situation has resulted in a very good shot. Very nice work with an opportunity for the viewer to add his own narrative. Warm regards Rosemary

Like this b&w capture a lot! It has been taken so well to focus our attention on the man and his fantastic view on the city. Excellent composition and quality achieved. Moody scene. Bravo!

the sense of depth and the sharpness on the gentleman are amazing. Your composition brings us very close to him and despite or because of the monochrome -I'm not sure which is correct- I have the impression I can hear his breath and a sigh, maybe. The juxtaposition of the lone man and the big city is suggestive. In spite of the sense of vastness ahead and the solitary, mysterious person, there's a fine sense of intimacy. Lighting and monochrome treatment are wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

A photo which makes us all think. I wonder what this man is longing for, perhaps, being the Melting Pot NYC is, he is yearning for his Mother Country. Anyway, a great shot, with superb lighting and an excellent choice of the dark sepia.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
