I shot this super late one night. I was in New York City for a single day, shooting a commercial for a clinic in the Upper East Side, and I got off around 11pm and went shooting until 3am.

This was shot after a very, very long walk in the sweltering heat in August. I shot this from the Manhattan Bridge, shooting south and had previously gone with an unobtructed shot with my lens sticking through a hole in the fence. It turned out great, but I wanted to get a slightly more urban feel here so I pulled the lens back by about a foot and got the fence in the foreground.

This has been a very popular image and I'm always amazed at how different each person's emotional reaction to it is. In the span of literally 5 minutes, I've had someone cheerfully walk by and say it should be titled "Freedom" because it shows such a wide open space on the other side of the fence! A few minutes later another gentleman came by and said that he was eerily intrigued by the picture and felt it should be called "Prison" because they felt the fence symbolized to them the feeling of being trapped. So to each his own!

It took some technical wizardry and further trial and error to both get the foreground a few inches from the lens, and the far background crisp and sharp at the same time! An ultra wide angle lens and careful use of the focus settings ultimately did the trick!

You can see the East River here, separating Manhattan from Brooklyn, as well as the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and lower Manhattan and Wall St in the background.

SHIPPING DETAILS
There are 3 ways to print these images, glossy paper printing, metallic style printing and canvas printing.

1) Glossy Paper Prints are professional quality glossy paper prints. They have a nice sharp and glossy finish and are only available in 8 in x 10 in. They are designed to be placed in a frame, which can be purchased separately (starting at a few dollars at your local dollar store or Walmart).

2) Metallic Paper Prints are much sharper, more vivid and the colors more intense than any other printing method I've ever seen. These are bigger. They start at 12inx18in and go all the way up to 30x45!

The official description states the following.

Warning: Technical jargon.

Kodak Metallic paper features an increased color gamut for stronger, brighter, more vibrant colors. It allows bright whites and rich deep blacks. This is not a cheap substitute to a metal print. It is genuine Kodak silver halide photographic paper, exposed digitally on our Noritsu or $150,000 Chromira printer, in sizes all the way up to 30”x45”.

I recommend getting the biggest piece you can fit on your wall, as the printing price only goes up gradually as you double, triple or quadruple the size of the print.

Note: This special metallic-paper printing, ships unframed in a box or cardboard tube, to ensure safe delivery.

The delivery time for printing, packaging and shipping on a customized metallic paper print is around 3-5 business days.

3) Canvas Printing is a well-known, high-end way of displaying photographs. This also has the advantage of not needing a frame. They come "gallery wrapped". This is a high quality canvas, stretched and stapled onto a set of 1.2 inch deep wooden stretcherbars that give it shape, in the same way an oil painting is typical stretched. There are no staples or ugly lines visible on the sides (very important). It comes out of the shipping box finished and ready to hang with a simple nail in the wall. Once the stretched canvas print arrives and is in your hands, you then have the option of framing it locally if you decide you want that look, instead of the no-frame "gallery wrap" look.
Even $5 million homes commonly have unframed work on their walls, depending on the decor style in that home.
The delivery time for printing, packing and shipping on a customized canvas print is around 14 business days.


*UNMOUNTED*

Any canvas print bigger than 2ftx4ft is shipped unmounted. This is because shipping large mounted artwork is extremely expensive as it needs to have a special wooden crate built for it, put on a shipping palet, go through a special cargo trucking service etc. This can cost $200-$500 dollars to ship just one piece, depending on size.

So for bigger pieces the canvas is rolled up in a tube and securely sent in the mail. When you receive it, you then take it to a local frame shop and you can get them to mount it, called "stretching a canvas".
