215 megapixels! A very high definition cityscape VAST photo of the Midtown Manhattan city skyline in New York City from the reservoir in Central Park; created by Dan Piech

The Reservoir Skyline: Slate

215 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Central Park, New York City
Central Park, the first landscaped public park in the U.S., is also the most visited urban park in the country. A sprawling retreat amidst one of the densest metropolitan regions on earth, its characteristic beauty is unmistakable.

The middle of the park is home to the man-made "reservoir" - one of the largest bodies of water in New York City. The view of the midtown skyline from its northern shore is remarkable. In one scene, you can capture the calm water, the lush Central Park flora, and the magnificent midtown skyline.

The impressive buildings that make up this skyline on the southern end of the park have some of the highest property values in the world, earning the neighborhood the nickname "Billionaires' Row." From this vantage point, the famous neighborhood, replete with sharp angles and high-contrast lighting, appears to be organically growing out of the curving lines and soft lighting of the Central Park forest.

I created this VAST photo on a crisp autumn day without a cloud in the sky. Despite the beautiful autumnal colors, I chose to use black and white because of the beautifully stark simplicity of the scene. The negative space of the empty sky beckons the skyline to climb higher.

Note: This VAST photo works particularly well as a wallpaper for dramatic interior design transformations.

Our ready-to-hang canvas prints are created using a specialty printer that carefully lays pigment inks down onto archival-quality fine art canvas material.

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
Handmade by award-winning master printmakers with over 4 decades of experience

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.
