I like it except there is too much tree branch as it is covering up the skyline. Perhaps if you got closer to the ground to bring the branch up more and show more skyline, but that is just one person's opinion.

I would agree with the tree. A little too much of it.

Now I could be bass akwards, but if you got lower to the ground to lessen the view of the tree, that would take away from the reflection of the buildings in the water, right? I think the reflection in the water is the coolest part of the pic.

You may loose some of the reflections but you would not have to move too much to get the branch out of the way. The other option would be to move left and/or closer to the water if possible. Or you could just bring a saw and cut the branch off :G

Yes, I definitely agree with you! I better get closer to ground. Well, this isn'tmy last shot.

Thanks a lot for comments/suggestions, they're really valuble for me as I study!

Upon reading the thread title, I thought you were referring to the light show on Sept 11 anniversary.
Ah well, nonetheless, nice "moody" shot - although it doesn't quite have the New York feel, no landmark skyscrapers in the backgournd. Makes it kind of a generic big city backdrop.

I sort of like the upper branch...particularly how it almost mirrors the bushes on the horizon. Nice shot.

Onyx,

Oh, no... This is not referred to 9/11 anniversary. It is, as you said, moody shot as intended to be. And it reflects my feeling at the moment I was shoting it. In spite of the fact that I like those .99 cents New York postcards, I didn't want to make this shot an ordinary hackneyed postcard-like picture.
It is a Mournful City Backdrop. I just put the city name in the thread title to denote the place.

Thank you for focusing your attention !
Stan.

I agree with others that it is a nice shot except for the tree taking up a very important space in the picture. It is redeemed somewhat by the fact that the reflections show us the parts of the buildings that are obstured by the tree. The trees are important in framing the shot, but I think it's a little too much here.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada
