Tags Trinity Church, Wall Street ← haunting the chapel → AIG.. augh.. 28 replies on “emptier still” ooh love that shot, i probably would have walked right by that building centered like that, well done you 🙂 Great how these buildings almost make an arch around the church! Oh!!! Splendid shot! Wonderful colour the buildings! BRAVO! Nice Angle and perspective These financial district photos are great. And the are timed perfectly as the unraveling of Wall Street continues. Love the framing, cool shot! Nice Angle and perspective. 🙂 Love the perspective. The sepia tint is working quite well for this shot. Waowww…nice fish eye Rian, beautiful perspective.. i love it. Regards from Yogyakarta Indonesia. The “canyon’ walls make great framing for the steeple. I like the ruddy look of the image. Nice one. Love your point-of-view. Looks as if you’re looking down some long deep canyon. Excellent! great toning. maybe I would have lighten up the top part of the picture a bit. But I think it is great just the way it is. The perspective is very nice. Well done again with the fisheye Rian! Thanks for complimenting on my way of going out on rainy days. Because it rarely rains here, I just had to catch a shot at that moment. This fisheye caught a kind of jaws cityscape 🙂 perfect toning and wonderful perspective! Nice use of wide angle. Like the way the buildings are “protecting” the church. Terje – http://terjeaalrust.blogspot.com/ The city is closing in on itself, Rian, and that’s almost scary or apocalyptic! Almost looks like a giant hallway leading to the church. Seems almost claustrophobic even though it is so empty. Nice angle and distortion.. the city is eating people! I love the coloring and composition of this photo! Well done! What a great color choice. I’ve not seen anything like this before. It looks like everything was coated with an iron oxide dust or something. (I don’t actually know if that’s what iron oxide dust looks like, but that’s the feeling!). I also like the angle and the curve. Again, seeming to be toward the church, which makes it extra interesting. I wouldn’t have guessed Manhattan. It truly is deserted looking. Your image is gorgeous. you’re so good with angles and perspective. another cool image Rian! 😀 Excellent effet grand angle et traitement coloré ! looks like someone squeezed the other building beween the two thus deforming the orginal 2 duildings. great perspective! sigh -that’s a mid-day crowd for where i live. anyway crowd jealousy aside i love the toning on this! seems totally fitting with the photograph. Nice photograph. I really like the depth and color it has. I went on a cruise of NY Harbor last year, and I remember seeing a church very briefly between buildings as I passed by in the boat. I wonder if this was the church. looks kind of like it. This one too! The perspective is wonderful. I can also see a metaphor ancient/moder, with the church at bottom. It makes a lot of sense.
