Here I star a new serie of photos from my last travel to NYC during 2013's March. Here one very important landmark the Rockfeller Center Ice Skating Rink and the Prometheus statue.
The Rink, is a skating surface that stretches just 122 feet long and 59 feet wide, and can only accommodate up to 150 skaters a time with many spectators looking on with delight.
The Prometheus Statue at Rockefeller Center in New York City is one of the most famous sculptures in the world. After the Statue of Liberty, it is perhaps the most celebrated piece of artwork in America.
Cast in bronze from the original model of the Prometheus Statue at Rockefeller Center, this Prometheus sculpture is gilded by hand in 24K gold leaf, and bears the sculptor's signature, P. Manship.

I'm excited to see your NYC photos. :-) This first one is very nice. I love Rockefeller Center, and you captured a great combination of skaters in the rink, Prometheus, and the Art Deco entrance to 30 Rockefeller Plaza above. Very soon the giant Christmas tree will be in this same spot. Maybe one day you will get to see it in person. :-)

You are my "downstairs neighbor" for today. I like the warm colors in the winter and the symmetry. Well seen and very well rendered.

Excellent shot of this iconic statue, and I love that you got the people skating into it too! The tones to the gold statue are really attractive, especially in contrast to the cold icy foreground.
all the best

Excellent version of this famous object. I like it that You keep the scene rather dark. It gives a lot of atmosphere to it.
Looking forward to more photos from NYC.
