Default 5th Avenue

I found this picture yesterday in the corner of my hard drive.

OMD-E5 + 12-50mm (no tripod)



Have a great weekend everyone.

You have some great places to be shooting. I really enjoyed shooting down in the Paris Metro. The NY subway system has got to be a treasure-trove of photographic opportunities as this example shows. It's amazing with all the people there, and being in the middle of Manhattan like you were here, there could be found a spot on Fifth Avenue with no one in the image.

I agree, nice composition and shot and amazing with no one in the frame!

I was thinking it would be interesting -- but a complete no-go, obviously -- to be shooting from down in the tracks. So then I thought about putting the camera on the ground to give some sense of looking up. But then it might have been much less effective than what you already have.

The 5th Ave station is extremely busy because is the stop were you access Central Park and 5Th Ave, I was very lucky to capture this scene in a very cold Sunday and the train just took all the people waiting there.

MacBook, thank you for commenting and the suggestion, I will try one of this days that POV but of course not from the train tracks.
