I have walked and shot this iconic subject several times and it's hard to come up with something that is not cliched and overdone. #6 - the inclusion of the one lamp post makes this image a stand out to me (in a perfect world you would have had just one person in the distance right under one of the the arches). A lovely, non-traditional shot as are #4 and #9. Great of you to take a different look.
Hatred corrodes the container it is carried in. http://rogerrex.zenfolio.com/

I remember as I walked around Manhattan (both this trip and last) being very conscious that it was difficult not to do cliches... In fact I remarked to Cosmin the next day that a real challenge would be to shoot in and around Manhattan without pointing the camera up..

Second set is neat (pretty limited by that weather!) with the blocks and Ellis Island standing out, but first set is really good. - really working the bridge. #7 for me!

I like first set of photos better. Especially #4 to 7 showing Brooklyn Bridge are my favs. I like the symmetry on your pics. TFS.

Another fine set Bob! I like n23 a lot, but n25 is the winner for me because of the name
