The poor is suffocated by all those skyscrapers, Hank But it's standing courageously there. Cheers, Dany
Hank, I was enjoying this photo because of the contrast of the modern buildings dwarfing the older. Then I noticed Pier A in front. I had just identified it a couple days ago when going through my recent scans. I have a picture that includes a good part of it, taken from the land in 1959, during the spring of my first year of studying in NYC!
Back to your picture - It's a fine one, not only because of the contrast in styles but because of the graphic interest caused by the "flattening" due to the telephoto. Good work!
Hi my friends. It has been so long since I've been in touch I'm embarrassed. So thanks for your patience with me, and for commenting on this shot. You comments are both right on. It was the flattening and the almost mosaic treatment of the scene that the light creates. notice even a shadow is fully represented as a form in this one. Best personal regards to you both, and thanks again.
