    Great shot. You really hit a fine line with the contrast. Well done. Not at all a standard shot.

Manhattan New York at night, from Empire State Building

The story behind "Manhattan New York at night, from Empire State Building"

Well, now for something completely different. New York, New York, big city of Dreams..

For someone who likes to be away from it all and wander in nature, I really enjoyed New York a lot when visiting it in February 2002. Jogging through the snow in Central Park, sleeping for a few dollars in a crappy place in Spanish Harlem and wandering around all the nice little neighborhoods that contain so many different cultures.

This is a standard shot of central Manhattan, taken from the Empire State Building. I know it’s touristic, but I am a sucker for heights :-)

Shot on B&W slide film with EOS3, scanned later.
