    BTW, would it be possible to replace the generic camera picture with the actual photo on your photography posts?

  3. Nicely done.

    And further confirmation of my belief that One World Trade Center is far more aesthetically pleasing than the Twin Towers were. They always looked like two gigantic boxes of Velveeta Cheese to me.

    really nice …
    do you think this would be worth a silver image print?

    …replace the generic camera picture with the actual photo…

    When I see the generic camera picture on the cover page for Dr. Taylor’s Friday post my immediate thought is “what is it this week?”
    It’s like summertime when I was a kid and I could hear the bells on the Ice Cream Truck a block away before I could see it.

    Very nice. I’d buy a poster of that.

    You see tons of cliche “God Light” – shafts of sunlight – pics.

    I have never seen a “God Reflection” pic before. It’s quite astonishing.

  8. All: many thanks for the kinds comments. I will admit to being quite pleased with this one.

    I almost didn’t use it because I had already used so many NYC photos of late–but it often seems that I get more comments on the photos I almost don’t use.

    In regards to the generic shot on the main page: I have thought about using the image, but it would be a giant pain, as it couldn’t be automated (I would have to do a number of manual steps each time). And, ultimately, I did come to a conclusion similar to what Mister Bluster described.
