Trump Tower, (named for its owner Donald Trump), is a 58-story skyscraper on Fifth Avenue, that contains both apartments and offices. There is a five-level atrium in the lobby that contains shops, a café, and a waterfall.
This is a split view of the waterfall, on the left, and the café, on the right. The exposure used, and the multi-level lighting in the waterfall, created an interesting effect. In a previously-posted photo, I presented another POV, showing how the lighting and café look from an alternate angle. You can view that photo here: Another POV

if I remember correctly the waterfall is pretty impressive and makes a good impact when you enter the building. You composed the shot well with the green plants splitting the image in 2 parts, with the inclusion of the people bringing life. Exposure seems to be spot on as well as the pov chosen. Good job! Thanks for sharing it and have a great day.

Just discovered you! With this shot and others in your gallery, you present a very interesting catalogue from NYC, with people and places, street scenes and colours - I feel as though I've been there already! Well done.

Wow, Brenda, this amazingly composed photo is really artistic. It has a special charme mixing an unusual point of view, the nice pattern of marble and the genre of everyday life in the shopping centre. Many thanks for sharing it, Jalab

Very interesting view.
I like odd or simmetric perspectives, like this one...

Wow - nice feeling here. Heights - well maybe. But colors and texture. Balance between activity and space. There is an empty table, a place by the water. Perhaps a glass of wine and time. This is a far place from China. Nice work!

ur other post from the same place is more like a presentation; this one is more artistic, with these two halfs. i think its a gret idea to have coffeeshops photographed from up, there are a few great examples here on te. very nice job!

This is an interesting photograph, so we can see the spectacle with two different dimension. There is the café at right side and is waterfall the multi-level lighting at left side as you note well. And, there is a green fence among them. It's impressive in the wet floor in water and café table at random, too. So, this seems to be one of the typical urban life style. Well captured from good angle and excellent tone/clarity.
