Postcard classic! Well composed and genuine. Many people seem to like to artificially add beams/rays of light to their pics. I am not a big fan of that technique and so it is a delight to see the real capture! Well done!

I like the mood of this shot.

I never seen this statue like this before.

Now I see this image, I imagine a telephoto lens nearby me at that time and relocate myself to right in the right distance, to get the hand with flame under the sun spot with rays expanding out of the clouds.

Actually, I had none of the flexibility you mention, so we must attribute the effect to sheer luck! I was on a commuter ferry boat passing the statue when the clouds opened up. I scrambled for my camera and got off about a half dozen shots before the angle of the moving boat and the skies prevented adding to the series.

Yeah, Luck is always needed especially to make photos moody. the next ingredient is photographers eye, then skils I would say.

I appreciate your effort, and your visit, but there was no video about this photo at the other end of the link you provided. Thanks anyway.

hi hank love the feel of this photo. i have never visited new york it doesnt appear on my wish list of places to see. is it worth a visit? i have a photo on my page of a statue on my local beach not quite the statue of liberty but similar mood to this shot.

Hank Waxman on May 25, 2007

Hi steandeb, I was born and raised in New York City (Brooklyn, actually) so my New York is not the same as the famous tourist attraction (New York City is made up of five boroughs - counties -Brooklyn being on of them. If you travel, New York is as much of a must-see as Paris or London with reasons for being on that list all its own. If you're coming to the U.S., I wouldn't miss New York, but I don't think I'd travel all that distqnce just to see the City. Judging from your excellent pictures, you'd enjoy the statuary and gardens especially. You have a nice way of combining the close up with attractive backgrounds.

steandeb on May 25, 2007

thanks for your kind and informative words hank. i hope i didnt insult you by saying i didnt wish to visit new york. i actually do but there are so many other places to see in the world.living in a city like you do your self i tend to want to see and holiday in beautiful places and actually try and escape city life. i live in liverpool.england.as we speak today our very own airport the john lennon internatioal has just begun operating flights to jfk airport. so i might visit sooner than i think!this is whats so great about this website it gives you access to images from all over the world.take care ste.

Hank Waxman on May 25, 2007

No insult taken, steandeb. I don't blame you at all, in fact I agree. I'm taking off for Utah myself in July; fresh air and beautiful scenery. Now Utah/Arizona - what I'd call the four corners area because four states come together at a single point, is definitely worth coming to the US to experience.

steandeb on May 26, 2007

thanks hank.thats whats so good about this website. it opens your eyes to different parts of the world especially america. i have viewed some fabuolous photos from idaho from ralph maughan.i didnt even really know or appreciate where itwas on the map.i do now!you tend to stick with touristy places like florida ,grand canyon, new york etc and there isso much more to see in your wonderful and diverse country.i would love to do route 66 one day.would this be a good way to see the US.?

mosten on May 26, 2007

very nice

Hank Waxman on May 29, 2007

You need a lot of time, steandeb, to think about Route 66. I've never done that drive from Chicago to Los Angeles, although I driven accross the USA more than 10 times (roundtrips count for 2). You'll miss a lot of great places, but you'lll get a real feel for the people and how they live.

Hank Waxman on May 29, 2007

Thanks mosten, and thanks too for visiting.
