Again a wonderful series of pictures, vvcarpio!

In #4 you have managed to isolate this interesting building of the theater in a nice way and give the viewer a chance to explore a special building and athmosphere.


#5 has a powerful perspective with the Empire State Building between those other high buildings. The picture is loaded with positive tension and power. Concrete, glass and steel - and the blue sky!


#6 is beautifully composed, giving the viewer lots of stuff to look at and you have been able to show that wonderful building of the Grand Central Facade surrounded by modern high-rise buildings as well as the hustle and bustle of traffic, and those beautiful (in a photographic sense) yellow cabs. The mirrowing in the office-windows contributes to give a wider view than your lens is able to show.


#7 is - for me - the best and most impressive perspective shot of 42nd Street, or any street of NY I have seen! Both powerful and beautiful at the same time, with that special mood of tarmac, sun-lit trees, highrise buildings and the sky at the end, and giving us that impressive vanishing point there.

Well done, vvcarpio! You seem to have a natural eye for composition and beauty.

Initially, I was hesitant to share them because I'm sure they have been photographed many times before. I'm happy to know that you enjoyed them, and in particular one of them (#7) .

Thanks a lot, Walter, for all your kind words! I have more than enough compliments to last this year and next, and maybe even many years after.
