Browsing the fc very often offers wonderful works of art that inspire me to paint them, and there are two photos of New York that captured my attention and I asked the authors for permission to turn them into paintings.
So here's another NY city painting...
This is the second painting, based on Phonya's "rain 5th avenue"
Very much like your interpretation of this atmospheric Fifth Avenue scene. The narrower p-o-v (compared to Phonya's original photo) works very well in drawing the eye through the rain reflections on the sidewalk and street toward the soaring art deco spire of the Empire State Building. You also added an attractive element not present in the original by including the reflections of the lamppost and pedestrian in the foreground.
this is just terrific, susana! new york in a nutshell – vertically beautiful – the city that never sleeps! – but in an almost dainty, oriental (the ornamental looking trees!) way! the empire state format ; )) is really special, and i just love the almost "juicy" (cherry and woodruff!) red and blue reflections of the traffic lights! greetings, sabine.
