Leading lines …

No matter how many times I visit the city, especially midtown Manhattan, I never tire of the visual wonderment offered by those sweeping big buildings. Yes, I know I risk looking like a hack tourist, but … who cares? They are truly awe inspiring and I am not afraid to just stand there and take it in. The experience doesn’t quite match to the near spiritual state of drinking in a natural wonder (think Niagara, Grand Canyon, or even a beautiful tree at sunset) but staring up at skyscrapers is facinating, all the same. In this image, I was struck by the convergence of leading lines… which were apparent in the original color version, but which I pulled out to an extreme degree in post processing. I like the effect, as it seems to draw the eye straight up to the clouds above. I am pretty sure, it’s exactly what the building architects had in mind all along. Hope you enjoy…

  1. Love this view of the buildings. I also love taking pictures of building in my city of Pittsburgh, Pa. I have tons of them in my archives. Thanks for sharing. Have a good day!

  2. Where are the lines?

    Just kidding, really nice shot. Especially in b&w with the reflections of the clouds.
    Well done

  3. Thanks Mike–yeah, I liked the clouds on the building, too… gave it a bit more surrealism. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
