Fantastic photograph - Wow! This should be framed and hanging on a wall.

wow!! I love this, such atmosphere, I can almost hear the cabs beeping their horns and the general hustle and bustle of this beautiful city! :o)

Beautiful shot. My suggestion is to crop it so the building isn't dead center. I have a similar shot, from the same place, in my portfolio. But I cropped it differently.

Great shot, brings out the beauty in NYC. In my opinion the only thing that could strengthen this photo is to crop out the moon and star. The moon keeps pulling my eye to it and takes it away from you original true subject.

Thanks for sharing

Very well done. It's hard to make this shot work because of the city haze that settles in the horizon.

great! I love images like this !

I really like the composition of this one. Wondering where the shot is taken from ?

Great capture/exposure. The moon with ?Venus is great. Nice depth of bg buildings too.You NY'rs have such great shots. Good luck with this architectural study. -9-

This photo has a great deal about it I like, but I think you would benefit by cropping the bottom 25% in order to place the horizon line at about 1/3 of th eway from the bottom. Placing the building in the dead cernter of the photo both horizontally and vertically detracts from the overall imression.

Good Image, that loses it strenght with to much sky, would have croped closer to the top of the Building,the moon and stars are distracting.IMO

Overall Calculated Average Score: 9, The worst thing about your image is the title. IMO, It simply doesn't need one.
