...videbimus lumen. The heart-shaped glimmer of light was serendipitous.

The De La Salle order tried teaching us Latin for about 2 weeks, that would have been about 1954, then they realised it was hopeless or more likely, we were hopeless, and more English would be more useful, as you can see that didn't work either.

Its actually a very well observed and taken scene, you'd have had to be very quick off the mark to capture it so well, a surprising aspect, to me at least, is the small number of pedestrians, I always though Manhattan was really crowded.

Weekend mornings are very quiet and peaceful in all the non tourist places. This is taken in Tribeca. The early morning east to west light shooting across the island makes for dramatic contrasts.

Boom. I knew you had to be funnin' with all the Terrence Malick stills lately. Hopefully a drum scan and a Shabbat goy to do the PS work will find some detail in the shadows and let you print big.

Terrific use of light to elevate this urban scene to something almost otherworldly. For some reason, the two people - small figures against the large backdrop - add to the photo. I dig it.

Ha! Thatís hilarious. That rural patina idiom is certainly a project in the beginning stages. Thereís quite a bit of detail in the shadows as I shot this uncompressed dng. Slightly overexposed then darkened the scene in pp. I find this a much more flexible way to work with high contrast scenes. That way the shadows are always there if you need them, and this glass tempers highlights exceedingly well.
