The Metroplois series continues to expand

I spent a good part of yesterday and this morning working on a new image for my Metropolis series of large scale photographs. This one is entitled, "Metropolis - the double-cross".  The title was a natural fit  because the image features both the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges joining Brooklyn and Manhattan, and also includes a double crossing of cables of the Brooklyn Bridge.

The resulting image is a triple exposure. When I look back at these images after they are finished, the fit seems obvious, but they do take a long time to assemble. It takes awhile to find photographs that work together and even more time to tweak and massage the individual images into a coherent whole.

The original images were taken with a Leica M 240 and Nikon D800. Working with high resolution cameras and excellent optics insures that the final print sizes can be quite large.
