NYC: Looking UP

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Dez Santana, Jul 25, 2008.

  1. I catch myself doing this a lot, looking up at these skyscrapers in Manhattan.

    D300 at ISO 100 to 400 & 17-55mm or 18-200 VR lenses.

    VERY nice shots. I particularly like the one of St Pat's looking through the globe being carried by Atlas. It has a VERY interesting angle - both from a religious and photographic perspective. :p

    F'ing Awesome Sir :smile:

    I'm thinking maybe a dash and a splash of Silver Efex & PTLens ? :wink:

    Have you altered you PP style recently?
    The "Hearst Magazine Building" looks more HDRish than your previous works ?

    Nice captures.............U Duh Man!!! Every time I'm in Manhattan (and I'm a local), I always catch myself looking up as well. The New York Times Building by the Port Authority Bus Terminal is interesting as well. It's no wonder why people have scaled it (those who were successful) or tried to.
  7. I don't comment too much but, your photos of NYC are outstanding. You have any subway/trains you want to post??? :) 
  8. Thanks Jose :smile:
  9. Thank you Brad :smile:
  10. Thanks James. It's a spot photographed by millions of tourists and New Yorkers alike :smile:
  11. LOL. No PTLens here, obviously. SE on the 1st and 2nd.

    No HDR. The Hearst Magazine Building was PPed with higher contrast and saturation. Tweaks w/multiply blend as well.

    Thanks :biggrin:

  12. Yes, I have the New York Times Building too:

  13. Truly a different angle. Great work but my neck hurts looking up.

  14. Thanks Abi. If you go to my site below, search for TRAIN and you'll see a few :wink:
  15. Thanks!

    There's too many to mention. Take a look at my site below for ideas. Have fun while in NY! :biggrin:
  16. Dez,

    great series
    i appreciate you sharing them with us
  17. Great shots Dez!
    St Pat and Emp St are incredible. To get something not cliche is really cool.

    I remember walking out of Rockefeller Center to see Atlas and St Patricks. It's an awesome site and you've captured it beautifully.
    I cant wait to go back now that I have more than just a P&S
  19. Thanks Greg, Fred and Kevin!
