  • remy on 14.11.2009 @ 18:12

    nice DOF! have you tried squared?

  • David H-W on 14.11.2009 @ 18:21

    Great location for this shot & including the telescope - seen quite a few from this location. However, this one is probably about the strongest Mr Frisky! The DoF, toning & the vignetting are what makes this (for me, anyway). Good job!

  • Luis on 14.11.2009 @ 20:39

    Dead-center focus on the viewer is spot on cool. Love the overall atmosphere created by having the blurred NYC skyline in the backdrop.

  • Argos on 15.11.2009 @ 00:30

    Cool concept & execution! The DOF and composition really work well...

  • grapf on 15.11.2009 @ 02:18

    Such a classical view: (nearly) timeless - amazing!

  • fabrizio on 15.11.2009 @ 04:02

    fantastic tones and dof

  • Claus Petersen on 15.11.2009 @ 04:13

    Nice use of DOF, and the black and white work is just superb.

  • Laszlo on 15.11.2009 @ 06:30

    Great shot! Beautiful tones. Damn I miss NY. I need to get my ass over there again soon.

  • Oscar on 15.11.2009 @ 06:51

    Very original. I like the polaroid colours

  • don on 15.11.2009 @ 09:48

    I like the concept of this shot and how you pulled it off. Special toning adds its own charm. Nice one.

  • MARIANA on 15.11.2009 @ 10:48

  • minimodi on 15.11.2009 @ 13:54

    i love this, and that's just about how far away MY background would have to be to get some bokeh lolol great great shot!!

  • sherri on 16.11.2009 @ 17:57

    Oooo....I like this. Reminds me of my childhood when these seemed to be everywhere. I haven't seen one for years. Your toning of it and the actual scene beyond are really nice.

  • terrorkitten on 16.11.2009 @ 18:23

    Very nice - love this scene.
