756 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of the West Village in NYC at night in winter snow; cityscape fine art photo created by Dan Piech in New York City

A West Village Winter

756 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
The West Village, New York City
Only a handful of neighborhoods in the world can claim to have as much cachet as the West Village neighborhood in NYC. Beautiful ivy-walled brownstones, home to many of New York's elite residents, flank charming cobblestone streets that remain free from traffic. Nestled between the bustling midtown and downtown regions of Manhattan, the West Village, with some of the highest property values in the world, is a residential respite many New Yorkers aspire to.

The idyllic neighborhood develops a special charm in the winter months as the warmth of tiny European cafes and candlelit restaurants spills out onto the manicured sidewalks coated in snow. It is this charm that I wanted to capture from a unique vantage point high above the buildings on a snowy Saturday night in early January.

A snowstorm had just passed and a clear sky was allowing the moonlight to illuminate the snow-covered rooftops in a sparkling white sheen. Residents, cozy in their homes, socialized behind glowing windows dotting the cityscape. 7th avenue, one of the arterial thoroughfares through the neighborhood, was abuzz with foot traffic as New Yorkers strolled into its famous shops and eateries.

I wanted to create an image that conveyed the warm, quaint energy of this winter scene and respected the neighborhood which, in many New York photographs, plays second fiddle to the adjacent imposing skylines that dwarf it. So, I set up my camera gear and prepared for a composition that placed the radiant 7th avenue directly centered. Furthermore, I planned for a very close crop to ensure that the iconic neighborhood was the sole focus and content of the image.

I then began the process of exposing the dozens of long-exposure images that make up this final VAST photo, the highest resolution fine art photo of the West Village ever created - a superlative artwork befitting an equally superlative neighborhood.

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
