Awesome composition! Although the sky is very well done, my favorite object is the lamp in the foreground. Great job on post-processing!

So much drama and contrast in the people vs. the cloud, really nice to look at..

I really like this picture too. Excellent work with the post processing. I actually noticed the same thing pawdrix commented on, the people sitting there peacefully against the threatening atomosphere. It might be cool if you could present the clouds in such a way that is looks like they are sneaking up on the people, foreshadowing the storm instead of having it already arrived.

This offers so much visually. I love the tonality of it. The leading line is done so well. The overall composition is great. I like the pink/violet touch on the sky!! Very nicely executed.

Well done.

I jusr read the first comment posted by KaDi.

It is strange seeing people sitting peacefully on the promenade while the clouds look like they are about to swallow the planet.

In the post processing I wanted it to first look like a standard B&W, which are often tinted slightly blue, but with a red sky to make it look more ominous. After looking at it on my mum's computer (LCD screen rather than CRT) it does look a bit brown and weird. I'll have to have a play around with it. Thanks for the comment :)

Interesting post-processing to create some drama--but maybe you went a bit too far. The sky is brownish while the rest carries a blue cast...just feels off to me.

Love the deep perspective. And it certainly looks like a "typical" NYC scene...Looking forward to seeing more!
