Photographer's Note

New York City
It´s not only the biggest city of the USA, it is even the third biggest city of the whole world (after Tokyo-Yokohama and Mexico City). Almost ten million people are living in the city, and if you also count the ones living in the outskirts and suburbs, you even reach a number of almost 23 million people (that´s over 15 million more than in San Francisco and 12 times as much as in Las Vegas!). The next incredible thing to mention is the gigantic circumference of 1.214 km².
New York City is divided in five different boroughs : Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Staten Island and ..... very probably the most famous one, Manhattan. The whole borough is full of skyscrapers and other gigantic buildings, but there are also some places to recover, like the famous Central Park or some other smaller parks hidden behind the skyline.

I took my photo from the top of the 259 meters high Rockefeller Center ("Top Of The Rocks"), from where you had a nice view to the city, especially to the 450 meters high Empire State Building, that you can see on the left of my picture. Actually the weather wasn´t so good that day, but the Blue Hour brought a nice sky, so I decided to give it 2/3 of my picture. Some strong contrast compared to my last landscape picture, I think ;)

I´m glad for any advice, hint or proposition, that could help me to improve my photography.


My friend Mark helped me edit this picture, thanks !!!
