    Very nice work
  6. Beautifully shot Richard.

    Nice wide view........but the bridge looks like it's about to fall to the left! :tongue:
  7. What a lovely shot of what looks like an absolutely fantastic location. Very envious, not a keen flyer so I won't be visiting any time soon! :)

    great point of view

  12. Nice one Rich. Beautiful reflections. I enjoyed shooting with you.
  13. Yes, the bridge is leaning slightly left. But check out the Manhattan tower of the Manhattan Bridge in the center of the frame: it's straight. This is not a case of a tilted horizon, but rather the parallax view of a wide angle lens tilted up (notice also the buildings on the left side of the frame leaning to the right).

    I had hoped to exaggerate this and use it for effect, but I guess it bothers some.

    On the other hand, I'm glad it makes you uneasy . . .:biggrin:

    nice shot Rich
    love the reflections

    what vantage point ?
  15. Thanks, Larry. It was a good night. I'm still miffed that we didn't get to Grimaldi's, however. OK, maybe miffed is the wrong word, but I can still feel the hunger pains in my tummy one month later. And doesn't John still owe us all Pizza?
  16. No way, it doesn't make me uneasy. I like this photo. I understand the lens does this. My 12-24 does the same, when tilted up.

    BTW Richard, your "game" has gone up a couple of notches at night! :wink:
  17. The corner of Cadman Plaza West and Furman Street, I believe.

    Why, thank you. Who'd of thunk it? I'm finding my way, one shutter click at a time.
  18. Perfect exposure.... I don't mind the parallax distortion at all.. :D
