Disaster Hits New York!

Oh look! A plane crash in New York City!
Nothing new or out of the ordinary, but with such a skyline and perfectly tall buildings just asking to be barged in, New York is the perfect location for some Photoshop manipulation.
Maybe it's my fascination for disaster movies or the strange excitement I get from hearing about a tragedy, but I love creating scary situations - especially when the viewpoint is the centre of it all.
My previous post a few months ago, Durban Destruction, is also a good example.

I created this image with focus on the plane and used a zoom blur to draw your eye towards it. I didn't wanna use a dark, sinister setting, as in reality a plane crash can happen anytime of the day.
