Union across Penn Station

It looks like I'm going to be putting up more street shots from my trip to the Big Apple. I actually caught most of the images that I think are "Puka" on the last day i.e. the day I was leaving. For instance this was taken en route to the B&H Camera store on 9th Ave. I wanted to get myself a new lens, and a battery grip for Skee. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get either of the items as the store wouldn't accept my Maestro card. There was no way I was also going to take out $1900 from an Automatic Teller Machine or Cash Machine.

Awesome wide angle shot...works well with the B&W processing.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Kay. I think the b&w makes it somewhat surreal, don't you think?
very good shot
Jide Alakija: Thanks bruv
Keep them coming Jide..
Jide Alakija: No problems sir

Great Composition, but unnaturally toned..I am refering to the black strip of black light on the left.... meanwhile, I like the shadow in the foreground..is it yours?
Jide Alakija: The dark strip on the left is the shadow of a tall building behind me. I just increased the constrast a bit. Nothing to unnatural there.

sorry maybe not toning is the word I am looking for...too early in the morning
Jide Alakija: LOL....
I know I've been gone for some time but when did they but a Zebra crossing there ? I really like this Jide and if this is any inddication of your last day in my city then I can't wait to see the rest of your images. Bet you never had that hot dog did you ?

Jide Alakija: Well what I meant about my street photography picking up on the last day was that I didn't do any shooting during the time I was there, well nothing serious. I was too busy doing other things. I have a few good ones to come though. I hate hot dogs!

Good use of natural spotlighting, for want of a better phrase.

Jide, that's a great shot.
very cool street shot with a ncie angle..the left bit may possibly be too sharply cut off in the darkness...
