Life in the tall city made me feel small
Growing under a roof of iron, glass and concrete
Above the buildings there is only god
And down here, there is only me
Nothing but me
I want to break through the walls of this city
Say goodbye to the statues of these modern times
But the city is too tall to let me see the future ahead
It's only in my dreams that I see myself under a roof of
Nothing. Nothing at all
I took this at One Chase Manhattan Plaza, New York City (Financial District).
I had that view in mind, showing how tall NY is.
This kind of shot cannot be found in Israel, so it was on my "To do" list when I was traveling in New York.
It did a semi HDR, mixing two images of this. One over exposed, and the second measured from the sky. I ended up using more of the darker image, because it brought more of the effect than the full HDR
