  6. I like the massive look of this tombstone. The buildings behind with the curve they show add to the interest of the picture. The toning is excellent.

  8. Rian, I have been through your last pictures, I haven’t been around and I missed you, the pictures you show of New York are just fabulous, Monday we hope to fly to NY and be there for one week, than I am able to see in real life what you captured.
    You did make us very eager to be there.
    This is a fabulous picture, I think you should try to go into postcard business.
    Thank you for sharing all these picture with us.
    Have a great day.

  10. Agree with the above comment here. Like I’ve told you Rian, I’m gunning for a wide angle/fisheye lens! ;]
