City Rising

**********************Best viewed in original size*********************

Watching the sun rise and light up the buildings of New Jersey's waterfront
is better than anything on television. You can see the shadow of Lower Manhattan
on the Goldman Sachs Tower (tallest building in New Jersey) at left.
To the left of the Tower is the famous Colgate clock.

It is a beautiful scene. I have never seen an image looking away from NY city. It's always the centre of attention.

Beautiful capture of the golden moment, Jenene. Not only the buildings, but the colors in the sky are awesome. Superb work. Vote

Your picture is so peaceful and the Hudson appears calm...It is beautiful. Thank you for sending it to us.

That was the perfect morning for a contemplative mood! I think that you found the right vertical balance in your composition, which I find always hard to do in a such image.

The light at the fringes of the day expresses itself with delicacy and transience. This glow, at times pronounced and at other times quite subtle, lasts only a few moments and then vanishes. But our camera's can stop time and light in its tracks, as you do here. Rarely do we see images of such wonderful light play on the skyline of urban New Jersey -- most photographers prefer to camp out at dawn in Queens, shooting the effect of the sun rising on Manhattan itself. You have given us very special look here at Jersey City. (And let us hope the sun continues to rise on Goldman Sachs!!!)
