    Terrific images all Robert, with "the pond" being my favorite. What software do you use for your panos?

    Very slick pictures - I esp. like fiirst and last images.

    I always enjoy viewing your work Robert, these compositions are further testiment to your skills.

    Whilst viewing these, I had the funny impression of you out taking these whilst you had a shop selling these as enlargements - how close was I ?

    Beautiful pictures. My favorite is #2. However, #2 also gives proof that Americans are cloning :eek:  : See the two ladies on the bottom right - they have been cloned.
  7. Nice series! I really like the "window" shots - it's different and verny nicely done.
  8. Amazing images -and D100 workout- Robert...

    I think you're the official LandscapeStitcher of the cafe :wink:
  9. Fabulous :smile:

    Superlatives cannot accurately describe how great these images are, Robert. Your captures always amaze me! :Shocked:
  11. Wonderful series Robert. They are all nice but the last one is my favorite. The angle of the shot and the lighting are superb.
  12. All are just wonderful but the first one for me is amazing! Great compusre, exposure and amazing dynamic range, oohh sharp as well! A dandy, I sent on to my NY obsessed 13 year old stepdaughter.... She only gets the best :)

    Very nice! We are going to take a trip to NYC in the spring time I think. I have always wanted to go, and now your pictures are making me want to go now. (Except for the cold weather)
  14. Very nice. Thanks for showing me your view of NYC. Beautiful imagery.

    The window shots...very nice lustre/light. Did you polarize any of them?

    Thank you for your comments

    Hi Phil, RForshey, Simon, Gale, Heiko, Frits, Panos, MGlennn, Eng45ine, Greyflash, Andreasb, Stef, SilverEagle, PIxelpete, & Robert:

    Thanks everyone for the kind comments. NYC is awash with colors and lights for the holiday season.

    As to RForshey's question of software, I used PTgui which I highly recommend. It is superior to realviz stitcher and also inexpensive.

    Simon I was shopping but I have never sold any of my work. I had some feelers but decided not to pursue them. I do photography for personal enjoyment, I always wanted to be an art major :) .

    Heiko, I think I will have to start to clone out some of those duplicate people. I am still trying to finalize my post processing techniques for panos :) .

    Robert, I did not use any polarizer for the window shots. I just angled my compositions to hide as best as possible the street reflections. The high saturation of those images comes from post processing and the characteristics of the lens, 12-24DX.

    Well I want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season to you and your families! The NikonCafe has really grown over the past year and has become a nice warm family.
