At the WTC No.3 - Sneak-Peeking Michelangelo in the Oculus

Curious visitors in New York's Oculus on this June afternoon were able to get a few sneak peeks at the large photographic reproductions of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel Ceiling paintings before being gently reminded by workers that the exhibit was not yet open to the public.

The soaring, light-bathed Oculus, designed by Santiago Calatrava is a an expansive transportation nexus in Lower Manhattan, connecting the underground PATH trains to points in New Jersey and providing indoor access to the major Subway hub at Fulton Center to the east, as well as offering shopping and restaurant venues.

    What an idea! Splendidly presented in this exhibition. And,of course, shown here in a stunning way. The only thing I miss is that you did not show us the exif data. A top photo!!
    greetings, Steve,

      Thank you, Jost! Sorry for the omission. I've just taken care of that, but I do notice that F-C for some reason has not been showing the actual lens used, only focal length and exposure data. Thus, I hadn't been adding the EXIF. But as you expressed interest, the lens was the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5, which I found very useful.for my APS-C (crop-sensor) shooting in the wide expanses of Lower Manhattan! Cheers, Steve
