Hard 'yards' Into the city  by Dhananjay Rao

May 2022 - Hard 'yards' Into the city

About the Image(s)

Description :
Shot from the High line trail at Manhattan, NY - West side Yard of the train coaches parked. Empire state building and all modern constructions all around. I like this shot for the frame. Thought monochrome gave the effect I wanted.

Shot using Panasonic Lumix FZ200 f/4 1/400.

From Lettuce fields to train yards and a stop along the way in Transylvania. While trees are prominent this month some other mundane parts of life are well represented, cities (and Train Yards as well as lettuce fields). And you are correct, this image is perfect for black and white. It gives it grit along with all the construction and equipment. And the final touch to include Empire State Building places it geographically.   Posted: 05/11/2022 11:39:34

Glad that someone else joined me in the different road club this month! I love the lines and crisp contrast presented in the photo. The perfect symmetry leading up the center of the photo grabs you and brings your right in to the construction ahead. Great shot!   Posted: 05/11/2022 18:04:19

What a great cityscape Dhananjay. As busy as a one armed drummer, and that's what cities are, busy. Nothing tranquil here. Presenting it in B&W is superb. Great composition and tones, with no distractions. Very well done.   Posted: 05/20/2022 04:19:23
