    Damn that last one is awesome. What is that water coming out of the bridge?
  11. Hey Dez... Nice shots as usual mate...

    That water fountain in the last shot on the right, can be seen in your first shot just in front of the columns of the bridge in the back, and looks like a temporary structure built...
    Just curious why this was done or what its for other than to look good... :eek: )
    Or is a permanent structure as its hard to tell from the size of the shot...
    But for what ever reason it looks good in your shot...
  12. Thanks Chris.

    It's a project put up by an "artist" depicting waterfalls. There's 4 in NY. They look decent at night but look horrid during the day:

  13. Thank you Wally.

    The City of NY paid an artist $15 million to build these 4 structures depicting a waterfall. I think they are ugly due to the use of piping and scaffolding. At night, the water is lit up and you can't see the pipes, so it looks a little better.

    Official site of these waterfalls:
  14. nice work, dez
    i like #3 the most
  15. Thank you Greg.

    On that one, I metered the sky to underexpose the buildings, as you probably guessed ;) 
  16. We have some urology-inspired nicknames for them, but I don't wanna talk about that now. I'd rather talk about your photos, which are excellent as usual. :smile: I like the 3rd one a lot, too.
  17. Hey Dez -

    You've found some amazing vantage points and you took advantage of them very well.

  18. a great idea
    and the "silhouette" result is EXCELLENT
  19. LOL. Nice one, "urology-inspired" :tongue:

  20. Thanks Eric :smile:
