I made it back home for a quick stop, so I thought I’d get a new picture up. :) I can’t remember for sure where this was taken, my guess was somewhere along 42nd St., but that really doesn’t matter much in Manhattan because there are canyon walls of skyscrapers on both sides of the streets…I just happened to like how this little configuration came together as I looked through the viewfinder.
There’s really nothing more to point out here, and I have no idea if there’s any significance to these buildings…just something that I found appealing amongst the concrete jungle of asphalt, glass and steel.
Thanks for stopping by.
* My dog-sitting duties have been extended through the end of the month, so I’ll continue to be slow in responding unfortunately.

well chosent the vertical format as the tight frame as we can see the hight building blocks to are so close one to each other.The excellent light management brings out the details of them.

Yep, your instinct was right, you made a very pleasant photo. It is interesting how one sees something and immediately recognizes it'll make a good photo before being able to articulate why. Then we can rationalize all the more about shapes, shadows, colors and what not but it all comes down to seeing it and recognizing the good photo in it. Well done!

Interesting choice for the vertical format, perfect to take these high buildings, interesting light effect, well done.

questi palazzi sono impressionanti, non finiscono mai di stupire.
Bel taglio verticale e bella presentazione.
Non li ho mai visti dal vivo, credo che la sensazione sia fantastica.

Oh, you are a dog sitter today? Great! Are you lucky? ;)
I like your come back to Big Apple, I miss the streets of Manhattan. Excellent combination of the simple shapes, perfect graphic and fine DoF.
Keep In Touch!
Best wishes from sunny Ural,

Amazing view this! The modern buildings look so impressive and created a spectacular composition with their different patterns and textures. Excellent work, TFS!
holmertz (37619) 2014-07-23 2:56
It's amazing what a lot of beauty that could be found in a concrete jungle (if there's enough bricks, steel and glass added). LIke you I don't have much to say about this. The elegant shapes and varied structures speak for themselves. There's a great rhythm in this shot anyway, and you exposed it really well.

Great vertical photo. Great lighting and framing. I like the repetition of windows and reflections in the glass. A very interesting result.
Sergiom (55247) 2014-07-23 5:54
J'aime beaucoup la forme très allongée de cette photo. Elle suit très bien la ligne des gratte ciel. J'aime la compression de l'image qui remplit les espaces vides. L'ensemble est d'une grande netteté.

Hello Jason, a happy dog sitter, I am enviouse on such a duty...
Big building on uptown 5th ave. NYC, only a wild guess, but looks alike.
Fine outlines and sharp details collected, on the intriguing city.
Have a nice day,
emka (73743) 2014-07-23 7:49
What is this dog that takes a lot of your free time? But you have nice walks so in effect it is not bad. The cats need not so much attention. But also it is trouble when travelling and I haven't had any cat for some years. It happened sometimes that all in the family travelled somewhere. perfect composition to show typical part of NYC, the vertical format works very well here. How many windows are here, I wonder :)

Bonsoir Jason, un ensemble architectural très bien composé. Excellent cadrage.
Cricri (101805) 2014-07-23 10:03
Salut Jason, promeneur de chiens, je trouve cela magnifique, comme l'on dit " qui aime les animaux , aime les gens " profite de ces beau moments avec eux :-)
Bon cadrage serré dans un bon choix du format, un ensemble d'ancien et du moderne, belle réalisation
Belle journée a toi, ici nous avons des journées de 38°, super pour un pays du nord,:-)
fritzi007 (3087) 2014-07-23 12:10
your picture reminds me of the skyscrapers of Toronto, something we have not in Styria.
Your photo is interesting, well done!
rbassin (16388) 2014-07-23 12:23
un excellent cadrage, le graphisme est agréable et d'un bon impact visuel.

Hi Jason, very good photograph of this interesting composition in the stunning city, beautifully captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, light, color and quality. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy rest of the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
ourania (27096) 2014-07-23 14:11
this is a superb composition, you managed to include a thorough cityscape with several architectures within a very slim and elegant frame. The perspective and the rhythm are stunning, I like very much how the repetitive patterns are interrupted by different kinds of patterns, also the way our glance is guided up and down to follow the variations. At the same time, the whole shows great consistency, your colour management is stylish and atmospheric. Congratulations and thank you! Such an interesting comparison of New York to a canyon. I might have compared it to the ocean but then I have never walked in its streets.
All the best, have a great evening,
nikkitta (13530) 2014-07-23 15:00
Hola or Guau , which is best?
Good to make time to post this very good capture of the high contrasting buildings, so typical from New York, it doesn't matter the street and good also the vertical format
It s Summer, so there, in the desert land of cactus wish you time to sunbath a bit
And also take care of the guau dogs and rest a bit without internet connection, good for health

Very interesting and attractive architecture picture!
Sharpness, exposure, vertical format and composition are true highlights here!
TFS - congrats,
jhm (135758) 2014-07-25 4:49
First, cares very well for your dog.
A nice picture, but very narrow image with the skyscrapers as subject.
Colours and sharpness make these picture attractive.
Excellent composition, also a very well angle with depth and perspective.
Very well done, TFS.
delpeoples (52729) 2014-07-25 9:14
Sorry, can't help chuckling at your hot looking profile pick. Excellent vertical frame which accentuates the vertical lines of the building. I like the vivid colours and sharpness. An all round cracker. nice one!
krzychu30 (15344) 2014-07-25 10:50
Hiding such photos for so long should be a crime my friend:)
This one is just awesome!I think it captures everything I love about photography-architecture,skyscrapers and strong graphical impact.Really excellent work Jason!
PS.it would be a great subject for LR and Photomatix:)What do you think?:)
Have a nice weekend
macjake (52888) 2014-07-26 6:26
Great to be back!
Hope the dog sitting thing isn't putting a cramp in your style - i know dogs take up alot of time and effort, but they'll repay it with lots of love and devotion. Gotta love dogs!!
Well my friend, Wrigley Field was EVERYTHING I had hoped it would be :)
What an experience, i'll never forget it. Wanted to see it in person since i was a little boy :)
and Chicago as a whole was a 10 out of 10.
Such a walkable city, so many photos to take!
As for yours here, its somewhat similar to Chi Town.
smart compo and frame, just go straight up! No need for horizontal views here.
Pour on more and more concrete, that all I have to say.
smart looking post, nice job.
Off to work now...cheers
Didi (55145) 2014-07-26 7:59

mirosu (12676) 2014-07-28 2:16
Outstanding buildings close up photo, superb tight crop. Really an excellent architectural photo. I like the view up, it makes the buildings even larger. Very good light and perfect clarity.
Very well done.

Hello my dear friend

of those buildings dominating the
have a nice time
EstudioChispa (1890) 2014-07-29 15:23
The perfect New York poster! :-)
I've been away from TE for so long that I can't tell if you are not showing us the EXIF data or if I just am not looking in the right place, but I'd love to know the lens you used. I'm guessing it was a moderately long tele, but I'm not sure!
Robert1969 (6858) 2014-08-01 7:19
Great composition and light management.
The lines and "blocks" in the picture
creates a lots of depth and highness.
The cut left and/or right emphasize
extra the highness in the picture.
Royaldevon (26793) 2014-08-04 1:39
Good Morning Jason,
This is just about as different as it is possible to be from the natural state; no greenery, no water, nothing actually alive and yet, we find it so attractive. Maybe it is the linear construction, our ability to impose our own regularity on a world that can seem a little chaotic. Whatever, in terms of photography, this is very well composed with a light control that ensures the details of the buildings and the reflections are nicely balanced.
How's the dog sitting progressing?
It's a great way to get out and meet people.
People always talk to dog walkers ... well, they do in England!
Have a great day,
Gigidusud (13613) 2014-08-07 14:05
Is what you have the van "Mutt Cutts" to walk the dogs? As our friends, Dumb and Dumber! Ahah ah!
I too am hard pressed right now not much time for TE.
Excellent framing on these buildings, bravo.
Bises mon ami.
Miss Gigi de Marseille ;)
berek (34197) 2014-08-07 23:36

I like this view very much too, its like the kind of thing I would have aspired to when I used to have Lego, but of course my result would have looked a lot less impressive :) Notice how I say I used to have lego, not used to play with it, because I would happily sit down and play with a bucket now! Excellent view here showing the classic combination of styles and how times pass. There is not one building here I don't really like.
Cheers again, and greetings from soggyton.
