    Wonderful shot of a yellow cab, glorious detail on such an iconic symbol of NY.

    Better watch out Faisel, that's Louie DePalma (Danny de Vito)behind you!!!!

    Great POV! Not to many people walking along would work out such a cool shot as you have here. Very well done.

  • Roland on 22.02.2010 @ 05:29

    This is very well frames. The brilliant yellow and the depth of field of the bridge and building - nicely done.

    Fantastic detail, lighting and dof

  • Kevin on 09.03.2010 @ 10:28

    Excellent colors. This photo captures the essence of the cab, without showing you the whole cab. Really quite perfect composition (and if you couldn't tell, I love the subject matter).

    This site is going into my RSS feed.

    Great Checker by the Brooklyn Bridge (Old Fulton Str?). I enjoy the little building in the background, introducing a soft diagonal to the picture.
