..what do you do when you wanna capture manhattan a-la vincent laforet but can’t justify the moolah to get a ‘copter? get up the tallest building you can find and dangle your camera out the ledge, and voila.. (just make sure to wrap the strap around your wrist..)
..this here’s looking up the north face of the empire state building..

awesome shot Rian! really brave of you to dangle your camera out there like that. lol! 😀
I take it you’re scared of heights:-) The soft desaturation is lovely in this image. Very nice.
Wow! What a view!
Really well done! I love the extreme wide angle on this!
successful for this one! grat wide angle!
Cool shot. I love Manhattan. You get a real sense of how densely packed it is from this.
Nicely done Rian.
WOW! This is absolutely amazing. Fantastic cityscape. Your ponit-of-view is both scarey and absolutely awesome!!!
I think I’ve been up there 5 or 6 times and everytime it’s different! That ‘strap around the wrist’ comment…. I know what you mean 🙂
At what height the empire state building peak is? THe view is great
Ã§a a du te demander du travail cette ville en allumettes 😉
A beautiful cityscape with lots of detail and color. Well worth the little risk of holding your camera out over the abyss! Nice one.
AWESOME! Great photo Rian! 🙂
Amazing shot and view!
Great capture of a beautifull city 🙂
Wow what a view!! Incredible photo!
It’s a really good picture, I like the foggy background; it’s far away from such typical views.
this is an awesome view of the big apple! man i want to come to nyc!
wow – this is really impressive! did you have someone holding on to your ankles as well?
i really like the soft color in this. lovely work.
nope, but i would.. if i could.. ;D
wow. that is super awesome. i love how the horizon bends with the lens. and i like the haze line too 🙂
I LOVE this city, and the photo, too. Glad you didn’t drop your camera or fall over yourself.
Amazing – the very BEST shot of a city I’ve seen! Wow!
Excellent! Love the curve of it. Like you’re on your own little planet. The city kind of looks like it’s made of cardboard. Really fantastic! I’m not sure about the dangling thing, though. Dangling the camera, I mean.
Very cool shot of the city… one of the better I have seen. Great work.
wow..wow..wow.. do not know what else to say – OUTSTANDING work !!!
Such an amazing view here. Spectacular.
Great shot but I feel queasy just looking at it (I don’t like heights) good thing there are photographers like you willing to get close to the edge with your camera.
It does tend to look like a big Apple with that kind of lens…doesn’t it?
In your next life, what bird will you choose to be?????
I like how this worked, I imagine that, depending upon the time and the day, a variety of different results could come from this vantage point. When I was up there it was a bit overcast. I want to try at night, maybe with a monopod. I bet that is an incredable sight.
