    Amazing details and contrast in this. I can’t imagine you POV location but it is outstanding.

  • Thanks Byron, I’m glad you like it! This was actually just taken from the street, a small perspective correction fixed the line convergence.

    Other than the fact I am terrified of heights I love this shot ! :) The window washers give this such a great sense of scale and make it special. I nothiced the guy above right away but had to look for the other guy. Wonderful B&W processing too ! Instant Favorite ! tony

  • Thanks so much Tony, glad you like this one! I felt so lucky when I was busy shooting away at the clock and realized I could see these couple of guys with the zoom lens. You’re right about the height, it would freak me out too! I hope you’re not the only one that will be able to see these guys – I initially was going to post this in colour but it is so much strong in b&w.

    Aaah, so you did find another one!!!…and what a terrific shot too! A real bonus getting the window washer in the scene to emphasize the scale and its such a powerful image in b & w….very good decision Damienne. Excellent work!!

  • I did, I started looking straight after I mentioned it to you. Thanks for your kind words and encouragement Martin – I’m so glad you think this one is worthwhile!
