Usually a crowd of people is distracting, however in this shot they add a certain mood and effect which enhances the overall composition. Great work! I just saw this same angle when visiting there last week…Deja Vu! A fantastic image and the processing is incredible. Definitely one of my favorites. A fine cityscape with all the tiny details I always like. The toning looks so good with this shot too. Very well done. Beautiful shot! The image looks so old… I love it! Great job! Did you cut and paste some pics together here or am I mistaken? 🙂 I’ve only been to NYC 2 times but this indeed is weird – uptown or downtown? Love the processing. Such clarity in the buildings!

An excellent image, and I love your processing lovely mood What a splendid way to capture NYC, Rian! It almost doesn’t look real! your pics really make my jaw drop. great work! 😀 love the tone manong! great shot! pano mo to na-pp? Stunning composition and I love the processing.
