Late afternoon in south part of Central Park, reflected on the lake’s water I saw the image of Manhattan buildings. Really I don’t know if the picture is better in this way or upside-down.

The photo is a wonderful mix of magic and moderns architecture. Nice strong colors. ¿Is it a photo or a painting?

you really dont know what going on but it is an amazing shot, so much to look at, its like watching a film, a whole story in one pic.

This is really good, great colours and it has a slightly surreal quality to it.
After turning my lap-top upside down, I think its even better the other way up.
mbasil (2129) 2006-05-14 15:32
Great image, either way. But I also had toturn my laptop upside down (luckily I wasn't on my desktop) I decided I prefer it right-side-up (reversed from what you have here). Of course you can always present the other one as a Workshop.
cleocat (221) 2006-05-14 15:32
I did the same as Ben and I like it anyway up or down. It has a surreal feeling. Stunning capture.
pboehringer (770) 2006-05-14 15:34
Hmmm, you're a rascal. The picture is awesome and I spent some time to figure out was "wrong" with it.
Personally, I prefer it with the real world view. Now, would that be the upside-down or the down-upside view?

excelent job and splendid composition. very well managed

Fantastic point of view.
Really nice shot
shirgold (2481) 2006-05-14 16:09
This is a fantastic shot. looks like some crazy workshop effect, an overlay of multiple images.
Well seen and well captured

Wow, that's great! I like the result of it, upside-down. It's a quite good composition, the colors are strong, there's a good contrast...Very nicely done ;o)
faraujo (1707) 2006-05-14 17:11
Nice view, the flowers and the leaves around the building result in a very good compo.
nbj (2095) 2006-05-14 17:38
Amazing, dreamy effect! Very well seen and done.
donluicu (24724) 2006-05-14 17:40
voilà une vue originale, tres bien prise, et l'inversement est bien vu.

i cannot resist not to put a smiley here. although the photo makes me feel giddy if looking for too long, but the idea is great.
jjcordier (77890) 2006-05-15 1:27
Une image très originale qui attire. je l'aime bien dans ce sens...mais également dans l'autre...difficile de choisir. Une image réussie en tout cas.
vinicio (23423) 2006-05-15 2:32
Affascinante riflesso Christian, complimenti, molto bello e curato nei colori e nelle luci, ottimo lavoro.
picardo (2459) 2006-05-16 13:35
Excelent shot and POV... if this is the "usual" view!.I think this is a strange but unique picture of Manhattan's buildings and the Central Park. Looks like you've taken the picture underwater!!!. Excelent colors and reflection!.
craiggc (2509) 2006-06-09 17:59
Wow, this picture really messed with my head! I thought it was a digitally created image. Then I turned my laptop upside down and it all meade sense.
oochappan (16688) 2006-06-18 2:15
most remarkable clear reflection, very well seen, I would like it as much not upside down I think, colors are excellent.

I´ve been looking in your gallery and you have quite a collection. Good work. This shot if very good although a bit overwhellming as there is so much to look at. Beautifully taken and I think I like it better upside-down.
fabio_ts (13696) 2006-07-25 3:42
Ciao Christian, i riflessi mi hanno sempre affascinato.. e Manhattan è la città che affascina chiunque.. in questa foto tu unisci questi due aspetti e ci regali una visione insolita e speciale.. BRAVO!!!
benkrut (2407) 2006-07-27 18:27
Very well composed. I like the idea of posting only the reflection and upside-down.
I posted a similar one from Sydney some time ago - take a look if you want to.
danielswalsh (13599) 2006-07-31 9:06
Great idea reversing this one Christian, I did a similar shot with a reflection off some wet sand- a different take on things for sure.
I;m quite amazed how clear the reflection is, especially off the murky water.
Well seen Christian!
Vagabond (5848) 2006-08-04 11:56
Lovely picture. Well captured reflections and colours. Congratulations ..

Mistral (15402) 2006-09-02 18:57
Davvero una bella immagine, con un'attenta composizione e ricca di colori e profondità.
SzeWan (96) 2006-09-06 8:53
Wow! I think I like it more this way. It gives it a very etheral quality. Great colours. I can't believe how clear the reflection is.
pady (4800) 2006-09-07 4:27
It's very good in this way. It's a little bit surnatural.
Nice composition, I like it.
dcawker (5717) 2006-09-07 10:37
Very surreal, which I always enjoy. A really original "take" on the reflection idea. Regards, Doug
nicoz (1979) 2006-11-03 11:05
Clever shot! Well done!
anes_lc (14968) 2006-11-03 14:29

alfonsoDS (8) 2006-11-10 12:25
wow...like a dream...!
suburban (44) 2006-11-16 18:02
A very interesting picture, indeed. I like the idea behind it and the way you managed to get such a nice contrast. It's confusing at the first moment- but it's great...
sothy81 (9582) 2006-12-11 12:28
Wow this is amazing Christian. It does look like the one in a movie. Looks so mystirious. Great reflection. Sothy
nico80 (628) 2006-12-13 13:28
but crop the bottom absolutely!
I was there in october, didn't see this at all.
Very well done.
JulioManueco (83) 2007-01-04 14:39
Saludos Christian excelente efecto al tomar el reflejo felicidades desde México!
Excellent efect the reflect is sensational
sebcz (2345) 2007-01-04 14:48
Tall buildings and green nature combine very nicely in a puddle. Great effect.
branley (3681) 2007-01-19 20:37
saw your image on the home page and it's amazing. I think it looks great this way and upside down! The framing by the trees is incredible too, well spotted, a superb capture and one for my favourites.
MikiM (1924) 2007-02-26 8:14
Really unique comnposition - with this POV. I think this way it is a bit more special. Not "only" a nice shot with reflection.
Thinking outside the box!!! - I admit your creativity very much! Your talent is obvious. Thanks for sharing.
fotoguy22 (4794) 2007-09-01 19:50
It's very cool how upside down is right side up. Great color saturation and I really like the green water plants or moss (whatever that is) floating on the water.
Bluejeans (64249) 2007-09-08 5:11
Ficou uma foto bem artistica , bem colorida , os reflexos dos edificios ficaram fantasticos , parabens!!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
