peg-legged

..shot on a late, cloudy day off of carnegie hall, a one-legged lady (not really)

*update 7:04PM EST*

..i think i’ve got some of you fooled..that’s not a reflection, that’s just an advertisement of the carnegie hall’s facade..i shot this behind the carnegie hall.. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. the blur works very well here since she is walking. the symmestrical view of the windows is also great too!

  9. Like the framing and composition, nice symmetry. The center two windows are really captivating. Like the lighting and tones here too.

  11. An excellent composition. Reflections and motion blur add deepness and life to it.

  12. What excellent framing on this super capture, the reflection is just an added bonus and icing.

  13. Very nice…color is great. A one legged theater go-er would have taken this shot to 11.

  14. Beautiful windows and I love the movement in this.

  16. Love the motion and reflection as well…nice capture!

  17. For some reason I find the motion blurry woman distracting rather than adding to the scene.

  18. I have to agree with some others who noticed the beauty of the reflection.

  19. I like the formal appearance of the windows behind the walker. The person makes a valuable addition to the shot adding eye-catching qualities and raising questions. By herself?

  20. Nice shot. Love the symmetry and the movement of the woman.

  21. Nice feeling of motion.

  22. Like the motion of the girl (one legged or not ;)), it adds some dynamics to the picture. Nice picture

    IvarOctober 3rd, 2008 at 21:08
  23. Totally original.

    I love the presentation, framing and the motion blurr all in one

    RadelOctober 4th, 2008 at 05:30

  27. Excellent balance off the colours in the picture, the blue windows and the red purse are gorgeous. Congratulations…
    I had heard of Carnegie Hall of course, but had never seen a picture. I even do not know in which city it is (shame !). New York??
