From the artist:
"This gorgeous architecture hidden beneath Central Park was a true classic I had to get for my collectors. I chose an early morning to shoot, with soft overcast skies. I waited days for the light – it’s what the shot is all about. I was surprised by the number of people around that early in the morning, even in the middle of winter. I guess it is Central Park in New York. So my biggest challenge was to shoot this scene without the people. I took a series of exposures when the light was right. The image radiated a soft painterly feel capturing the true spirit of New York City I was chasing."
