4,201 megapixels! An incredibly high resolution photo of a beautiful sunset, the NYC skyline, and the World Trade Center; cityscape fine art print created by Chris Collacott in Manhattan, New York City

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.

Our canvas material has a delightfully matte finish that looks spectacular in any lighting conditions while retaining maximum vibrancy and contrast. Click here to learn more.

Printed onto heavyweight, 100% acid-free fine art canvas to preserve color-accuracy and longevity
Created using materials and methods that exceed the rigorous technical standards required to achieve the prized "giclée" industry rating
Designed to meet the most demanding standards for color-permanence set by leading museums

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.
