I can see what looks like the fingers of 2 hands in the picture. One is to the right of the statue, about center of the wall block, and the other is to the bottom of the statue and immediately to the left by the feet.

geomanncer, great catch! I went back to the original exposure series, and it turns out what you see are ghosting artifacts from creating the HDRI. There were people walking through the picture while I shot the series.

Looks creepy, doesn't it? --michael

Чему посвящён мемориал?

Boris, the memorial is dedicated to the 3000 people who died on this day in or as a consequence of the attacks.

definitely a place that is a hidden gem. Watching that skyline of Manhattan and its "valley" is almost as exciting as from the palisdaes on the Hudson river shore.

That ghosts just gives and additional kick :)

cheers, michael
