Your right Duck, I think it would make a great jigsaw puzzle. The only thing I would have done is pull the upper right about 1° to the right, the left tilt of that first building line bothers me a little.
BTW, You should stop by around Main Street in Flushing, Queens, it looks just like that only more so.

First, thanks for the Queens tip. I'll definitely check it out.

As for that slight tilt...
So, as I was processing this late at night with bleary eyes I noticed that tilt as I cropped in. I should have corrected it but I was tired and I used the excuse of, "who's going to notice it anyway. It's so slight."

Well, here you go. Let this be a lesson to all. :dunce:

Good eye, Bob. :thumbup:

If you ever plan on making it to Flushing, let me know, I'll meet you there. Although we live on Long Island, my wife and I are both from Queens. And my wife still works in Flushing, 41 years at Flushing Hospital. How about we go for some Korean food?

I have actually been wanting to get to Corona Park and scout it out for a possible meetup event. I was going to go with a buddy of mine who's into IR photography. If you are available on a Monday we can make make plans. We'd love to meet up with you.

On the day I took this photo in Chinatown (Memorial Day weekend) I had an entourage of 18 people. It was a fun day. I haven't even finished going through all my images from that day. I have a core group that really enjoys traveling into New York for some street shooting. I this past event, as you probably already know, it was mainly to walk the bridges and get some architectural and landscape shots. Past events we've gone into Chinatown, Little Italy, Hell's Kitchen, Battery Park and the East Village areas.

Another event I want to put together is A Day in Central Park. There is so much to see and photograph there.
