Daily Deviation

Given 2004-12-25
For some reason i think of New York as a 'christmassy' city. Well, New York is a lot of things, and this cool black & white photo shows us a city full of lights and life, and the fog gives it an unreal glow... From the E-State by *friscorain ( Suggested by nebulaskin and Featured by suzi9mm )

wow! that makes me so jealous!! if you look at my shot 'New Yorrk's Veins', that's the angle i was trying to get!! argh i always forget to tilt the camera :(

i love the monochrome on this one, after seeing it i might try desaturating mine - if you don't mind :) yours looks so cool with the fog though...

into the favourites it goes!

As a born and raised New Yorker stuck in hell (otherwise known as Los Angeles, CA), it tears at my heart to see a wonderful photo like this. Shame it's not available as a print. I love it. Great work.

Nice work man, I'm feeling the B&W. I took some similar shots from the Empire State and left 'em with that warm red/yellow tint, now I'm thinking I should have flipped 'em in B&W. Once again, nice work man....
