Thoughts, input...all appreciated
More images of New York up on my blog...link below
I like the perspective. Just out of curiosity, how did you achieve that angle? Put up a ladder in the middle of the intersection?
Were you on one of the tour buses when you shot this photo?
I simply put on my anti-gravity boots and floated up.
My wife suggested that we take the tour bus (something we both hate doing - but at least it was a hop on and hop off thing) to see if I would get some interesting camera angles. Plus, we were tired of walking so much haha.
The leading lines lead to infinity, away from what seems to have been your intended subject, the people in the cross walk. At least based on your thread title.
Good eye, thanks for pointing that out.
What caught me by the scene (and general life in NYC) was the chaos that happened when a light would change...people rushing, cars turning, horns honking... everyone trying to get somewhere as far as the eye could see.
sorry twinky, but I didn't post in the other thread..... something about jackets, the met and cabs..... 'kin awesome series. Diggin' the PoV on this one bro.
btw, the met shot was killer, close second was the cabbie.
Pierre, I love downtown and urban environments. But nothing compares to the hussle of NYC. Being there during the week at rush hour trying to cross the street is pretty funny. My wife and I got seperated a few times trying to cross a street.
No prob Kund, thanks for the comments, no matter which thread you put them in
That is a very cool picture.... a bus... that is a good way to get this angles... will have to try it...
Awesome picture. When did you go? I was actually just there this past tuesday-saturday.
Make sure its the double decker ones and its not raining...or ensure your gear is ready for the water hehe.
August 6th to the 10th. Just getting around to the images now.
Where did you stay?
