I`m posting this picture as a tribute to the Big Apple, New York, its fabulous architecture, and because my son Fredrik - Bergenphotos - here on TE, as one of 48000 runners, is participating in today`s New York City Marathon. Of course I was also somewhat inspired by Craig's (macjake) recent bookmarkstyle photo from this great city.

I'm watching the marathon on television right now. :-) Your photo is a lovely tribute. You chose two colorful buildings with different styles that perfectly show the mix of old and new that we can find here in NYC. Good luck to Fredrik!

intriguing building and set up against the other more brightly colored makes good composition and works very well as a attention drawing factor. Great colors, contrast and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

I like your photo very much, because it associates two skyscrapers of different periods and architecture styles, and the vertical format reflects perfectly the vertigo's feeling we have while walking through the city... I hope your son enjoyed the marathon !
Have a nice evening,

una foto che colpisce immediatamente din dalla miniatura per il notevole impatto visivo. E guiardandola ingrandita l'impatto è ancora maggiore per la bellezza della composizione che è basata sull'accostamento di due edifici molto particolri e diverse per forma e colori evidenziando la loro verticalità con un rtaglio allungato molto efficace senza trascurare una gran nitidezza ed un contrasto di colori, saluri al punto giusto, che è un vero spettacolo.
Ciao e buona serata

Excellente photo et j'aime beaucoup le beau format vertical. Tu as choisi le bon point de vue pour prendre cette photo et le cadrage est parfait à mon goût. Bons détails et beau contraste de couleurs.
Tous mes compliments,

I like the subject, the title (new to me), the colours, and the composition of this picture. It is interesting and beautiful, it reminds me that it is time to go to New York City again. TFS.

remarquable version bookmark de ce célèbre bâtiment. J'aime l'association avec l'immeuble plus moderne, la lumière, les couleurs et le cadrage.
J'espère que ton fils s'est comporté honorablement lors du marathon!
Il se passe des choses bizarres sur TE, c'est la deuxième fois que je réécris la critique sur ta photo!

finally have my 20 critiques back:)
I´ve seen the photo yesterday and I must say it´s truly brilliant contribution to N.Y gallery here on TE!
I don´t know how could you hide this one so long before us:)
Really like this tight,vertical frame you applied here.It makes the scene much more expressive,although the graphics is strong anyway because of so vivid and well contrasting colors.
New and original look on Big Apple!
PS.I hope Fredrik´s participation in N.Y marathon went well.Impressive achievement and certainly a great memory for him.
Wish You a nice day

J'aime beaucoup le format de cette composition, toute en hauteur et très mince qui avantage les superbes bâtiments .J'aime beaucoup les couleurs vives et bien saturées.

Very attractive vertical capture. I like the different styles of architecture, truly impressive detail.
Have a nice week.

Very attractive combination of two completely different high rises. I have not seen the image during any of my walks there. Will look for it next time.
macjake (64788) 2013-11-04 10:53
haha...thanks for the plug :)
wonderful photo, it jumped out at me immediately, and you're right, the composition bookmark style works well in NYC!
love the color splashes and contrasts, sharp and clear too.
Hope your son does well!
Have you been to Lofoten? Tosca and I are thinking of going in the winter season to get some beautiful photos. Is the only way to get there by airplane from Oslo? Lofoten looks AMAZING!
