    I decided that on September 11th I would travel to NYC to see what it was like 7 years after the attacks... Sorry these are posted so late, I had knee surgery for the 5th time the day after and have been in a lot of pain. C&C is always appreciated as usual. Well here ya go...

    Overall an amazing experience and I was able to meet a lot of families who lost loved ones... I hope I did them justice.

    Like the last two very much. The last one could be cropped just a bit more from the left bottom so the black words are properly centered.

    I like 'em! The subjects are razor sharp and well-isolated from the background.

    Anyone in particular? I don't want to take advantage of the picture, but I am looking to enter a picture into a competition and just wondering which others feel is that one picture that really hit home. Because to me it may be different, the crying woman really struck me hard, but then my mother felt differently, she liked the tattoo arm as the first commenter did as well.

    thanks for all the comments.

    they are great, but the watermark is so unnecessary

    #8 (the tattoo one) probably would be the best contender for a competition but #7 had most impact on me. Yhe downside to using that one is there's a bit of motion blur going on and personally I would find using that shot somewhat intrusive, (purely my opinion).

    Really a great series, thanks for sharing.

    I think these are great and I like the series very much. I must agreed that the watermarks on the images are disturbing.

    I know I really hate putting the watermark on, its not my favorite, but I've seen a few people have there work stolen. So unfortunately I do it just to protect all my hardwork, seeing as how I was up at 5AM to get into the city on time. Plus I know that I am one of the only ones to have these shots. All the other photographers were on the otherside of the ceremony, but I found where all the families exited from and was able to speak with many of them and looking around, I only saw one other photographer at that location.

    Thank you for all the comments, I really appreciate them and really appreciate the kind words. I'll try and tone down the watermark as well.

    Nothing wrong with the watermark.. I know alot of people out there who simply just steal images. Its unfortunate. Anyways, very good pics.. i love the black and white portraits of the older people. The detail is so sharp!
