The Grand Central

Grand Central Terminal, New York City. There are a lot of pictures of Grand Central. Yet, no one really bothers to look up at its fabulous and amazing roof.

    Awesome shot!

    It looks like the flag is suspended in the air. And I like how you framed this shot as well!

    Impressive building. Well observed!

    Good point, I've never seen this view. Love the choice of framing.

    Great touch of the symmetrical, a really like the astronomical drawing.

    And the memories. A dozen oysters in the Oyster Bar, one of my favourite eating places in New York.

  • Chris on 28.01.2010 @ 00:49

    The symmetry works nicely with the ceiling's artwork. Fantastic control of colour and tone too!

  • sherri on 28.01.2010 @ 01:02

    Wow. The structure holds such history and the American flag is so appropriate there. The colors in this are exceptional.

  • Fotografia Ślubna Warszawa on 28.01.2010 @ 05:17

    the paintings on it is great

  • elaine on 28.01.2010 @ 05:41

    amazing vertical depth

  • kyungmee on 28.01.2010 @ 10:24

    nice shot! Good composition too..To get that huge dome feel with good composition is not always easy..nice job!

  • don on 28.01.2010 @ 10:35

    I like the symmetry of the shot with the flag as the prime element. Fine image with very nice color and detail.

  • yiannis krikis on 28.01.2010 @ 12:42

    excellent colors and pov

  • Luis on 28.01.2010 @ 23:17

    Awesome catch, man. Love the color contrast here. A rare perspective...I've been guilty of taking the usual approach myself.

  • minimodi on 29.01.2010 @ 04:54

    powerful shot, looks like a pretty impressive building...

  • Klaus on 29.01.2010 @ 07:45

  • Bob Towery on 30.01.2010 @ 11:04

    Luscious, gorgeous colors. Such a well done image. One to be proud of for sure.

  • Marie on 30.01.2010 @ 17:05

    I really love the symmetry and the matching colors.
    Very well done.
    Great blog. Voted! ;-)

  • Sylvain on 18.02.2010 @ 17:06

    Very nice shot. The place seems to be great. Your framing remembers me your recent "apple on 5th" picture.
    It's a bit less dynamic but it works fine !

  • Tayab on 25.02.2010 @ 12:11

    This is a beauty
