Manhattan Skyline by Lynne Royce

June 2021 - Manhattan Skyline

About the Image(s)

Here is pix and description for June. Hope you're having better Memorial Day weekend weather then we are with temps in 50's and constant heavy rain. Definitely not beach weather.
MANHATTAN SKYLINE: If go to the very tip of New Jersey can see Manhattan Skyline in distance which captured with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on beach walk last week. It's a reality check that bustling humanity close by even though surrounded by nesting plovers, quiet beaches, gently blowing sea grass and soothing, peaceful sea breeze. Edited in Snapseed.

What a neat place for a skyline photo. Not being from the East Coast, I would have never know that a place like this was available. Thanks for sharing. Jerry   Posted: 06/03/2021 06:58:01

The contrast of the foreground with the skyline is powerful.The weight you give the foreground is a very effective suggestion of what is important to preserve in our world. I really like it.   Posted: 06/03/2021 10:12:25

I like your shot. It shows the width and height of Manhattan in the distance. I have to add that I think there's too much foreground with too many things that pull my eyes away from the intended item (I started to type "intended target," but that sounds terrible). I understand you needed to stand back to include more Manhattan, so I don't know a solution other than standing on a ladder!

An interesting contrast in environmental diversity. Your title indicates that the main subject is the skyline but the foreground takes up a major part of the image. To me you have really captured the dramatic difference between the high rise steel and concrete city to the quiet natural environment of the shore. You stated that nicely in your last sentence.   Posted: 06/10/2021 21:29:27

Nice location of the skyline. Interesting contrast between the buildings that are close to close, and in the foreground the lack of development. Good job.   Posted: 06/12/2021 11:42:56

I like that you've captured something in the close-mid-far ranges of the frame. This keeps the eye moving through the entire image.   Posted: 06/13/2021 12:43:17
