New Jersey Skyline by GlennC

Currently unavailable for purchase

I’m proud New Jersey is my home
Yeah said I’m proud now New Jersey is my home
Well they’re breaking out the tractors to build more interstates
They’re moving out my neighbors all across the Garden State

I’m proud New Jersey is my home
Yeah said I’m proud now New Jersey is my home
They’re closing all the factories making people lose their jobs
While the fat cats get rich living high upon the hog

I’m proud New Jersey is my home
Yeah said I’m proud now New Jersey is my home
Yeah they’re grooving down at Freehold this bird’s left in line ain’t what the people had in mind

I’m proud New Jersey is my home
Yeah said I’m proud now New Jersey is my home


Taken as part of a series of urban landscapes I am trying to work on. This was shot from down town Manhattan looking over to New Jersey and the lyrics of the Springsteen song seemed so appropriate in the current financial times.

Canon 5D/24-70/10 stop ND+3 stop grad. 2 mins exposure at f16.

    Amazing shot. Great use of monochrome and perspective

  • John,
    I am glad you liked the perspective, I had some strange looks lying down with me tripod trying to get low enough!

    Really dramatic shot, you’ve obviously been on your travels! I’ve note seen any NY shots like this before, think I’ll be over there next summer so will need to look out for this, very unusual.

  • Donald,
    Just had the pleasure of some time in Manhattan! I am glad you think it is a different take, i was looking for something which stood out from the more obvious shots. Enjoy your trip next year, but be warned they do not like tripods! I had a number of discussions with individuals about them….

    I like this a lot son, wonderful use of the dark one! it’s great how you got the empty line between the posts to lead us right to the skyscraper with the dark cloud emanating from it, very strong lines and sympathetically processed

  • Thanks Dad, I did get some strange looks taking this shot, as I was very low down (read lying down.) I saw the gap in the old posts and the building lining up with one another but the cloud was luck!

    Watch out Mr Hoflehner, you’re snapping at his heels. As already mentioned, great perspective…love how those posts look like they are marching towards the city. Great bit of light and shadow on the buildings…the print should have some cracking depth to it.

  • Ian, Kind words indeed! I will need to get the printer warmed up as it has been neglected recently….. I have heard some very good reports about your large prints!!

    This is one of the most original skyline shots I’ve ever seen. Two of my favourite subjects, architecture and seascapes, in one shot. Very original and definitely awesome…

  • Joel,
    From such a talent person as yourself these comments are very much appreciated. Thank you.
