  1. I grew up in New York and haven’t lived there for years, and much of the city I knew is long gone, but you’ve shown me a bit of it that still resonates. Thank you.

  3. Wonderful Godbeams and B&W conversion. I like how the bench, figure and railing are silhouetted!

  4. I missed the person at first and was all taken in by the beams. then the benches – and the person chilling out – made it an even richer photo

  5. A good friend of mine describes this effect as “God Rays” and you have captured it perfectly. This image is a showstopper, Jane.

  7. Love the silhouette. Jane, the monochrome just sets the right mood for this image, it’s actually very storytelling.

  10. The waterfront at the financial district is one of my favourite places to hang when I am in Manhattan for work (the office is on Old Slip and South Street). I love watching people eat lunch and stroll the esplanade​.

    • Hi Khürt, It is wonderful how that area has been reborn- I love to walk along Hudson River Park. I used to work in lower Manhattan in the 80’s…what a different world back then. Happy you enjoyed this shot- thanks very much.

  11. I echo everyone else. Gorgeous. Monochrome is definitely correct. Puts me in a New York state of mind.

  13. Great rays, Jane. The person on the bench is missing a great show.

  14. Monochrome works so well when color would detract from the structure and mood of the image. I can’t quite figure out if this was taken from the Brooklyn looking toward Lower Manhattan or Manhattan looking toward Brooklyn. Fun and great image.

    • Thank you, Bruce. I’m happy you like the monochrome conversion which I think emphasizes the silhouetting and the light beams nicely.
      This was shot from Manhattan looking toward Jersey City/Hoboken from Hudson River Park.
