1,051 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of the SoHo skyline in NYC in winter snow at night; cityscape fine art photo created by Dan Piech in New York City

SoHo Glow

1,051 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
SoHo, New York City

New York: the city that never sleeps. This expression, while clichéd, is nevertheless a palpable truth every New Yorker has experienced firsthand.

It was 4am and I was at the top of the tallest building in the low-lying region between downtown and midtown Manhattan. At a time when nearly any other city would be quietly resting, these streets were still aglow with the bright lights of taxis, windows, and street lamps.

High above the glowing streets of the famous SoHo neighborhood, I had an unobstructed view from the Empire State Building north to the Brooklyn Bridge south. In-between lay countless New York neighborhoods, each with their distinctive architecture and energy.

The scene was uniquely mesmerizing because a large snowstorm had just passed and the typically-dark rooftops were capped in a thick coat of powder. This glistening snow covering transformed the character of the scene by illuminating the rooftops with the faint blue moonlight.

With the contagious energy of the city motivating me, I spent an hour meticulously exposing the individual photos used to create this exceptionally high resolution VAST photo. The final photo has a truly stunning number of fascinating corners of the city to peer into, from the Downtown Brooklyn skyline to the ever-vibrant Chinatown, to the iconic Union Square architectural triumphs, to the industrial Con Edison plant complex, to the ornate SoHo facades, to the ultra-modern Midtown skyscrapers.

I finished the photo at 5am as the early-risers began to outnumber the late-nighters. Brave individuals could be seen going for a morning jog on the snow-covered sidewalks. The energy of the city had never dwindled.

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.
