it's Thursday, the official second half of the week, which, of course, includes the coveted weekend. I haven't had a tilt posted for quite a while, so here it is - buildings in the South Manhattan near the Battery park leaning towards a blue sky of the weekend.
I had previously posted this photo from the same area.
p.s. for the moment I have no internet connection at home, I appologize for being very slow in responding to comments lately. I'll catch up in a week or so.

Always knew NY was a bit off kilter anyway. Nice capture Kristine, the weekend is always too far away and too short in duration.
belido (19934) 2008-07-31 7:28
it's not the first time I see your choice for the tilt and it's not the first time I find it an excellent idea. This dynamism matches the idea of a cosmopolitan city. Very well framed. The dark blue sky is a nice bonus. Very good job!

Once again, the tilt works well. It creates a very dynamic picture.
You've done a great use of the marvelous light to bring the modern architecture out, and the deep blue sky makes a perfect back-cloth to underline the towers.
The great quality of your image reveals many details.
A very good job.

hey there, tilt freak - you! ;)) tilt works well for you yet again. but what i like most about this one is the saturated blue sky against the reddish fasades. a nice contrast!
crckt (7216) 2008-07-31 8:03
This is a good one! Nice saturated colors, tilt works well. I am also leaning towards the weekend, too bad it is going to be hot and humid :(
npecanhuk (56368) 2008-07-31 8:12
I liked the POV!
I also liked the colors (buildings and sky) and, of course, the architectural items in which you have matched some older examples to more modern ones! Very nice!
TFS - Congratulations!
Greetings from Brazil,

Excellent architecture shot.The tilt works fine here and the light is very nice. The blue sky is a great contrast.
johannes68 (3469) 2008-07-31 10:54
stunning photo, so clear and clean, great colours, full of light - what more could one want to celebrate the weekend!
Waylim (23312) 2008-07-31 11:15
The leaning toward the weekend sounded very optimistic. When we get to the weekend can you tilt it back up so we won't be leaning toward Monday? I love the details and texture of this architecture with the very rich tone and color. Very warm and soothing, even for a scene in the city, there a sense of calm and quietness. the deep blue sky contrasted very well on the orange gold buidlings. Excelent work as usual. Thanks Kristine.

Wow friend!!, you are tilted the camera?
The composition that is certainly daring, and the diagonal pattern is very appropriate as taking that beautiful deep blue background.
I like the sharpness of the buildings, making good use of lighting, which by this time of summer, shines in its fullness in the north ...
Very balanced making, certainly. Greetings ..

A good architectureimage with excellent sharpness and fine details to view.The tilt works nice here and I like the bright colors and contrast.
daddo (20639) 2008-07-31 16:42
Hi Kristine. I like the title and the anthropomorphic angle to your work. no pun intended. As for the angle/tilt, it is eye-catching and quite dramatic.Excellent light and details. The colours are vibrant also.Have a great weekend. Klaudio.
fabio_ts (13694) 2008-08-01 0:02
Nice tilt that emphasize the perspective, colors and light are wonderful and, as always, you have really well composed it, compliments Kristine!!!
have a nice weekend,
azaf1 (15929) 2008-08-01 2:55
A lovely shot from the Metropolis of the US with excellent light and creative tilting.
The common place working in a great way
Dpbours (222) 2008-08-01 3:03
I'm not a big fan of tilting, but here it gives a nice graphical effect to it all. Interesting! I do like it more than the previous posting about the same area. Here it is easier to see a real area in it.
albertz (2468) 2008-08-01 8:14
The tilting is dramatic but what i like most is the tight framing and the light. The sharpness and clarity is superb as well. Good shot.
wishlist (4133) 2008-08-01 9:23
I like this shot, it's crisp and very clear, full of well visible details and beautiful colours woth the amazing deep blue sky giving a great contrast. The tilted compo works very well adding dynamism. Great job indeed.
Have a great weekend and regards,
JorgeCK (2620) 2008-08-01 9:42
Wonderful photo of the NYC architecture. As soon as I saw the thumbnail of this picture, I knew it was yours. You have developed a signature shot with the tilt shots and in my opinion all your tilt shots are gorgeous..
Taking pictures of a plain building and making them 'come alive' is a unqiue talent of yours.
I really enjoyed looking at your pictures, they always portray a unique perspective.
Keep on shooting
Morac (27419) 2008-08-01 13:59
This is a good one! Nice saturated colors.
A good architectureimage with excellent sharpness and fine details to view.
brandstaetter (15913) 2008-08-01 14:45
your technical quality is really excellent. I have to learn the use of filters...
Cheers, compliments, Christian
zeca (19762) 2008-08-01 19:45
Excellent photo with professional quality of colours and sharpness. I like the tiltness! Well done!
Wandering_Dan (3449) 2008-08-01 20:18
Hi, Kristine -
Again with the tilts! I don't know about that one building touching the top of the frame, but overall it's a great shot, beautiful colors and forms, and yes, a thought-provoking tilt!
Best from DC,
dumbo (4541) 2008-08-02 4:56
Nice and sharp city buildings against amazingly blue sky. Good colors and excellent POV!
macondo (18461) 2008-08-02 5:17
A wonderful tilted shot. The colours are magnificent, and the polarised sky just makes a perfect backdrop to the buildings. It's not unlike my shot which you commented on! Strange how a scene like this without any humans visible can seem so tranquil in such a maelstrom of a city. A delight to behold.
gunbud (34066) 2008-08-02 18:20
This a beautiful urban landscape with the vivid blue sky bringing out the lovely shades of gold, red and silver of these tilting high rises.
Excellent clarity and razor sharp details to this fine urban presentation.
feather (51128) 2008-08-03 4:35
Tilt is not my favourite thing but with the strong graphics of the NY buildings I think you get away with it here. Instead of hundreds of vertical and horizontal lines you now have them in diagonal, and we all look for diagonals don't we?
plimrn (21344) 2008-08-03 8:08
Thanks for linking the two photos, it really shows how effective selective focus can be; of course the harmonius balance, the razor sharp focus and vibrant colors are also neccesary.
That big lens is really quick and the focus in wonderful, but I had considered it too difficult for landscapes when I borrowed my son's, you teach me otherwise.
Sorry about the Internet connection, I feel crippled without one!!
bertolucci (13351) 2008-08-03 13:16
You've again captured an astonishing level of detail in this very dynamic archi-capture which really makes it, 2gether with the great contrast Kristaps mentions, sing. The tilt seems to be conceptual here ;-) and adds to the dynanism. Excellent,
Have a fine start of the week,
ifanik (21673) 2008-08-04 0:38
Very nice architecture photo Kristine
Beautiful POV and colours
marietom (34607) 2008-08-04 3:55
Joli tilt, qui met parfaitement en valeur cet ensemble d'immeubles. Les couleurs sont belles aussi.
mikeo (12129) 2008-08-04 5:01
So typical tilt of you:) Great!
Here it suits perfectly! The common buildings here thanks to this effect look really interesting.
Great colours and quality!
baba_flies (8829) 2008-08-05 8:02
Salut Kristine! I already start to lean and it is only Tuesday, and I really begin to wonder what tilt I have by Friday :)))))) A clean shot with a fun aspect leading us to the side and I just realize that I have a stiff neck and need to exercise. There are these krrrr sounds coming from my neck ... am I getting old? Points for your work title, made me smile, it actually already did when you posted it, you were below me but I had to run and could not respond, so here I am, and points for the idea and for the great photo work. Excellent ... hope you are connected again. Barbara.
alftrek (3270) 2008-08-05 18:28
I like your style in composing architectural shot, here with rich colours and good contrast with the blue sky.
John_F_Kennedy (41526) 2008-08-08 0:33
A beautiful composition with perfect vertical perspective which I like very much to see.
cfreire (11739) 2008-08-11 14:22
Ny, NY. It's a nice place to take interesting picture. This city always offers to us attractive angle for a click. Good shot well composed with good saturation of colors. The contrasts are marvelous under a creative POV. Well done. Best Regards, Consuelo
sarahnatalie (695) 2008-08-11 17:54
There's something really nice about the light in this one. Normally I am not especially fond of tilted images, but I this one is very effective. I like the sharpness and the colours of the buildings against the sky. It looks like a summer sky to me, so I am surprised to see it was taken in March! Nice job,
devimeuxbe (58557) 2008-08-12 8:41
The colors and the light are amazing. I like this dynamic tilt also.
I like this beautifull picture
aadilj (18102) 2008-08-13 3:50
Thats absolutley stunning and fresh with such energetic colours and textures. I love the tilt and the way you have created this concept
fulvio52 (8314) 2008-09-03 23:17
just catching up with your work while waiting for you guys to come back from Yellowstone, he he!
One of your trademark tilts, which works perfectly well for this kind of composition.
Colorful, dynamic, cosmopolitan, totally NYC OK!
The latter is an original of mine...
Have a great day, see ya soon.
jusninasirun (17146) 2008-09-20 10:36
Hello Kristine. A clever way to place the NY skyline in the frame. Very sharp focus with flawless exposed details. The saturated blue sky works in your favor making this a very good lean for the anticipated weekend. Well done and TFS. Jusni
