Every evening at the same hour it is common to see at least a dozen photographers with their tripods, and no kidding, nowadays with their cellphones, trying to record the magic of Times Square . I was simply one of them, and on this occasion I tried also to use the old zooming technique which consists in moving the focal length when the shutter is released. It was a quick gesture which had started before the click.

You have used this simple unique technique to capture .. the relentless motion and energy of this urban place .. the existing light is really amplified by your technique .. I was thinking .. wondering what it would be like to layer it with the central tower from a "stable" exposure .. wonderful image and a lesson.

Nice execution of the zooming technique. You capture the light well and still retain sharpness and clarity. Nice job with the exposure as well.
I would like to see more symmetry in this image; you set it up with the building in the center, giving us the expectation of symmetry, but the building is slightly tilted, and uneven amounts on each side.
Overall, nice work, thanks for sharing!

izzet - this technique has worked really nicely here. I like that the centre of the frame is still in nice enough focus.

A different but wonderful and creative picture. This is a real lesson about photography.
I love how you use the lens and this amazing work.

Hello Izzet Bey,
What ingenuity and what a nice idea to make the shot different.
The colors are superb and the upward motion that leads us to the wonderful colored sky is wonderful.
I wish you an excellent weekend.
Best personal regards.

Hallo, that's a great idea with this technique, you captured the speed and hectic of life in the city which never sleeps! I really hope to see such a view in one month's time, during my trip from San Fransisco to New York! Thank you and best regards, Hanna

Well done . I like the effect you have here. It makes Times Square look even busier and faster.

Perhaps we could re-name this one the Magic of Izzet Keribar's Lens - a very nice use of the technique to catch a sense of the vibrant buzz of NYC - I look for a little more clarity in that centered building but the idea is such a sound one.....
best wishes Kev

İzzet bey selamlar,
With your great POV, this shot is Excellent.
Coco is right, you are a teacher most of us in TE.
TFS and informative note.
Best regards with my friendly wishes.

l'effet est vraiment interessant ici. cela donne une image coloree, confuse et surchargee comme semble l'etre l'endroit.

Cool shot, Izzet. I hope it's destined to be published in the print medias. So well fitting the assault on the senses and frenzy of New York, and actually, already jumping out at us, from its thumbnail page on TE.

Very nice and TFS - Shir

"the old zooming technique"...
It might be old to you, but this is new to me... the results are excellent.
