Well.. I have to say I love the fact N-Y is a city on the sea and a harbour...I am a sailor, and water feeds me... so even if this image is one that could look as "postcard style", I consider it more: the mix of the old boats, the absolute modern symbol buildings, the warm of the boats and the cold of the buildings, added to the smog create a nice atmosphere, and just those fantastic sailboats that came long time ago from far countries make all sea lovers dreaming... thanks for understanding the feeling... and so many various mix makes the wide N-Y and suburbs a fantastic city.

C'est une belle photo avec le bateau en avant plan, et j'aime bien l'atmosphère des immeubles tours qui disparaissent dans la brume.

It would seem to me that you have the sentiment to become a good photographer, seeing things in a way that convey more of the feelings and atmosphere of a moment or locale as opposed to the immediate attraction or beauty of a well known spot.
Subtle details and nuances can go a long way, and you've made mention of a few here that help bring this to life. Nice connection between the varying elements. Enjoy the new day.
All the best,

Nice scene in seasons mood.
I like this architectural details in combination with details from boat from marine.

Hello Sebastien - Love the colors here, they work really well with the dull, overcast and foggy day adding to the mood of your composition. This is an unusual look at NY, less glitzy than we often see but very much more down-to-earth and gritty. Your low viewpoint empasises the height of the skyscrapers, especially as they disappear into the mist and the boats make a great FG subject. I love the use of the swinging rope as your lead in line. A special shot, TFS and warm regards Rosemary

i've been to NYC, and i actually remember photographing almost the exact same scene as this one here, in this exact same spot.
I remember finding it difficult to compose a 'perfect' style of photo as the buildings, the sailboats, and the busy nature of the scene just didn't work in my eyes at the time.
You're photo seems to echo that too :)
but you have all the elements you wanted....the misty atmosphere, the boats which you love so much, and the city architecture of NY.
Merry Xmas to you and your Family
