A very interesting series.
Wonderful sights from a city I only know from film, tv and pictures.
I really enjoyed these.
The second one is my favourite.

Wonderful pictures! They are so special in BW.
I was there back in 1970.
Thanks for the souvenirs.
New York is an authentic beauty.:Love:

Oh yesss, Dez. These are wonderful, especially the first one. Just the right amount of haze for the backgrounds of these. What did you use for your B+W conversion? Well done.

The only thing I'd change is I would clone out the screen clips in the second image, make it a bit cleaner for the eyes. I can see the first one printed up large and framed.

Excellent series. Very nice incorporation of water and fading horizon. They make me want to visit NY soon.

Nice captures and processing.

Nice work! I really like the cloudy look particularly in the third image with the background.

You've got this concept down to a Poetic Science Dez! Excellent Job!

Awesome series! The second is my favorite, with the first one a very close runner up.

These are all amazing! Those straight lines are impressive to me. They are perfect.

Thanks everyone! :biggrin:

Always enjoy your shots of NYC Dez, makes me what to make that trip back there..!!!.

I know that they are needed, but the new batch of aerial towers popping up on top of all these buildings (last 2 shots) don't look right unlike the Empire State building that was design to have it on top and looks great...
Plus they really spoil the out look of NYC... JMO...

I agree but unfortunately, the Manhattan skyline is changing and we will see more of the new modern structures popping up.

Thanks :smile:

Love #1, Dez. It's a smasher. But this is just a great series of images. Every one is a keeper. Beautiful!
