Down Under the Manhattan Bridge

Sorry I hope you’re not getting tired of my images from DUMBO but I just loved shooting there. This was a beautiful spot to shoot the Manhattan bridge while also including  Jane’s Carousel (on the right). This carousel was originally created in 1922 and was installed in a park in Youngstown, Ohio. Jane and David Walentas purchased the carousel at auction in 1984, at which time Jane began the painstaking restoration in her studio in DUMBO. Jane’s Carousel opened to the public in Brooklyn Bridge Park on September 16, 2011.

I was thrilled with the final image and then decided to see how it would look in B&W. I love both versions for different reasons but I’d love to hear from you. Which one do you prefer?
