Default Street Scene - Literally

Looking toward 125 Street on the West Side, The A Train stop, from 135 Street.

The subway, which at this point is overhead, reaches a height nowhere else found in the city. It's an old track, and the iron-work is something that you don't see anymore. At some time in the future I'll post a close up of this iron -work.

This is almost a 100 percent crop of the scene.

And I thought that your Sigma DP2 had a fixed focal-lens? This looks more like a shot with a tele-lens to me.....?

Another thing, Dave. On the left side of the street there are no less than 6 yellow warning-signs (and at least 1 on the right side as well) for that pedestrian-crossing down at the bottom of the street.

Is that usual the case in NY? There must be a jungle of traffic-signs in that city!!

Forgive me for nit-pickin' but the scene itself (as most of your street-scenes) is so exotic (even though I have been to NY and went to see some show in Radio City Music Hall, when I was about 19) for an old country-boy from Norway - that I study ever detail in your pictures!



Anyway - nice take!

:O]

It's a very odd intersection, even though it looks straightforward.

The Sigma has amazing resolving power. While this is an 800 pixel thumbnail, it was only reduced by about 150 pixels. As I said, almost a 100 percent crop. This foveon chip is truly amazing. There is basically no chroma noise, and very little luminesence noise at ISO's up to 800.

This particular train station has iron work that is beyond belief. I have to pull over, take some shots, and post them here. And yes, it's odd to post a shot taken more than half a mile away, and still have credible detail at 100 percent.
