Jennifer got some good lessons. She’s put the horizon off center frame. In this case the boring water has been cropped in favor of the dramatic clouds. I was going to say she shot in Brooklyn, but Jen lives in Hoboken. You shoot what’s familiar. So this is a shot of the Empire State Building, Manhattan’s Westside, and the Hudson River. The sky would have been boring without the clouds. Although, I have to say that I love a crisp cool bright blue sky morning. It evokes some great memories. You might consider stitching together a series of images to make a panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline. That’s a classic image. There’s nothing wrong with treading where other’s have gone and using their ideas to make your own image.
