    Very nice. I like the one of Rockefeller Center the best, I like how everything seems to come together at a point.

    Absolutely terrific!
    The second one is my favorite but the first has a lot of appeal, sort of remote and lonely somehow.

    Rockefeller center is my favorite. It has exellent composition, depth, and colors. I really like how everything points to the tree in the background. The angels in the front add some great spirit and splendor to this shot.

    Do you have a big pic for my desktop???

    Anyways. the first shot is composed well but needed something to offest the bleakness.

    thank you!!!

    yea, something is missing in that pic. couldnt find anyone to go with me... and didnt see anyone that interest me to be in the pic. maybe the next snow storm.. i do have an idea i want to compose.

    its funny.... i used to work down the block from rockefeller for 10 yrs.. but never walk over there for any pics. just too much ppl there. too much tourist. i had to get online to get that pic.... but worth it. :)

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    have you tried lightening the first picture? or increasign the contrast? cuz to me it just looks like the snow should be a little brighter. Only problem I really see w/ it.

    My wife and I absolutely love NY City. We wish we could have been walking around with you. The pics are nice.

    The snow does look rather gray in the first pic doesn't it? I would guess the white balance possibly as snow can really throw it off at times.
