Water and Stone

Lincoln Center, New York

Hipstamatic iPhone New York City Pictures
All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks. Gilbert K. Chesteron 
The quote included with this picture is probably one of my favorites because it is so true. It's like architecture takes life after sunset and becomes something completely different. 

The architecture and sculpture in this photograph are located at The Lincoln Center in New York City. It was raining when I shot this picture so the area was pretty empty, which is good. Usually this place crowded and it makes it difficult to take a good photograph. And in New York it's rare, very rare, to find an empty spot so this was the perfect day.

The reflection in the water makes the sculpture look even more beautiful. The sculpture together with the reflection, the texture of the water and the coins all contribute together to create the perfect sight for a good photograph in New York.

This photograph was shot using Hipstamatic on my iPhone and the settings were Lucifer IV/BlacKeys B&W. I converted it to black and white in PS CS4.
