7,070 megapixels! An incredibly high resolution gigapanorama photo of sunset and the New York City skyline; cityscape fine art print created by Chris Collacott in Manhattan, NYC

I only had two days to capture this image when visiting New York City. The first day I spent scouting for the right location and by the end of the day, I had found it. The Jersey City waterfront has the perfect vantage point for a balanced composition of lower Manhattan.

There was a clear and uninteresting sky on that first evening so I did not shoot anything. So much of what makes a great photo is the weather, sky, and clouds that you happen to be graced with!

On the second night, however, the sky had some high cirrus clouds, and as sunset arrived, I took my time taking every single exposure that make up the final VAST photo. The sky and lighting were perfect and I needed to make sure I flawlessly captured it in that moment. As part of this capture technique, I used a neutral-density filter to capture the Hudson River using long exposures, causing a silky-smooth effect on the water.

This is one of the highest resolution VAST photos I've ever created - you can make out people visiting inside One World Trade Center. Coupled with that resolution are the beautiful clouds, illuminated in a perfect pink hue against the blue sky.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
