Don't know why I haven't seen this beauty Hank. Happened across it in the conversations of a Russian friend. :) (Guess I need to look a little deeper in your gallery.) This is just great. Awe inspiring capture my friend. Very well done.

Best regards, Tom

Now I know why this picture has been under performing. It's because it didn't have the benefit of exposure on your most-popular pages. Now I feel as though I've arrived.

Kidding aside Tom this is my most popular picture and I think it has achieved so highly because it embodies hope and idealism in a symbolic way that reminds us of our core beliefs, and not those we compromise daily in order to survive.

Thanks for the comment, my friend.

Best regards,

Hank

Well at 188,000 plus views it is certainly deserving of a Y* from me. It really is an exceptional capture. Have a great day Hank. ~Tom

Thanks Tom. The credit goes to luck; I got my share of it that day. My personal best to you,

Hank,I have a question.What time you take this picture?At morning or dusk?

Hank Waxman on June 15, 2009

Actually, Apologize1989 it was late afternoon, around 4:00 pm I'd guess. I had just visited Ellis Island (a National Park, alongside Liberty Island where the Statue resides) which is dedicated to the immigrants to came to the USA. A storm was building and we were on the ferry heading back to New York City when the clouds opened up and the bright afternoon sunlight pushed its way through.

You don't get much luckier than this, do you?

Hank: Felicitaciones por la fotografía! Es realmente hermosa. Sinceramente me emociona y me trae maravillosos recuerdos cuando la conocí en junio del año pasado. Vives allí en NY? Porque si fuiste turista debes haber imaginado muchas veces en tu cabeza tan espectacular fotografía!!! Además tu español es muy lindo! Saludos desde Mendoza, Argentina. Romina Liz

Hank Waxman on June 17, 2009

Gracias por sus amables palabras Romina. Mi español es tan bueno como Google Translate, aunque trato de mantener mi oraciones simples. Nací y crecí en la ciudad de Nueva York (Brooklyn); luego se alejó y regresó en 1983. He estado en la mayor metrolpolitan zona desde entonces. Me alegro de que haya disfrutado de mi foto.

Saludos cordiales,

Hank

Hank Waxman on June 23, 2009

Hola Romi. Estoy tan contento que te gusten mis fotos de Nueva York, y me alegra que te gusta la ciudad en sí. Hola a la Argentina de Nueva Jersey, EE.UU..
