This tower is located in Chinatown although I photographed it from the Manhattan Bridge. It’s a handheld composite of two images resulting in a stitch done in Photoshop, but for those who have yet to try there hand at this be warned that a tripod is to be much preferred although even a simple two image like this can get over twenty meg. Shot with a Canon 5D Mark II and 24 mm lens.

    really interesting angle….I always try to envision where this was taken, what building? Where was this photographer standing?what vantage point? what hurtles?
    what a pain to get there and not have the shot!
    it’s always worth it though

  • Thanks my friend, one of the good things about taking photo hikes in Manhattan is that you can plan your adventures in two for one mode. Here I had mounted the Manhattan Bridge from Chinatown taking a few shots on the way and having shot this from the ground before I played around from a few bridge angles, yet the real reason I was on the bridge was to get a day shot and panorama of the Brooklyn Bridge and lower Manhattan. As for pain, the problem here was that the shot for this and the Brooklyn Bridge had to be shot through wire and metal mesh fencing which did force me to crouch and restricted my angles. That to me is what can make the whole process more like hunting; don’t let the big one’s get away!
