His most famous image was of Miles Davis, which was on the cover of Davis album, Kind of Blue. He is well known for capturing the light, color, and gesture found in every day life.

This is a brilliant picture clicked by Jay Maisel. The top view of the city with the clouds coming in the top too is a brilliant way of making this click look wonderful. The composition of this picture is also amazing.

Jay Maisel is known for his way of showing or observing colors. In this picture, he ahs used color contrast in the pictures composition to enhance the pictures quality. The greens on the header and the footer and the subject being in the middle gives an artistic touch to this picture.

The Statue of Liberty from a top angle view looks brilliant in Jays perception. The extreme long shot of the subject, using the thumbs rule to bring the focus on the subject and the use of the natural light, i.e., the sun light for the background and the shadow of the subject brings a different clarity and sense of naturalness in the picture.

Jay Maisels use of colors in his pictures cannot be compared to any other photographer. The way he has used colors to highlight the window, and therefore bringing focus to the birds sitting on the window is awesome.
