    I primarily went to visit with a friend and check out some of the tourist places that neither of us have ever visited in the city. My feet are tired of standing in lines, but I had a great time. I just wish people in New York understood the value of air conditioning in the summer.

    All images taken with my D200 & 18-200mm VR.

  2. Excellent. You're getting a lot of good results with that 18-200VR!

    Thank you, everyone. I had a great time running around the city with my friend Colleen. She lives up there and takes photos with her collection of rubber ducks and comes up with some creative and hilarious images.

    The only danger was that little girl playing in the fountain. Colleen took some pictures there, and the girl wanted those rubber ducks.
     
  7. Some great shots, we're thinking of going to Manhattan in August for a couple of days...some good ideas of where to go (especially the Seinfeld restaurant :biggrin:)

    I'm curious, in the shot of the church/cathedral, there's no distortion...is that pic pretty much out of the camera, or did you do some PP/correction?

    Thanks.

    Chris:

    Tom's Restaurant was an interesting place to go for the kitsch factor, but it's just basic food inside. We both had the chicken sandwich and it wasn't all that impressive.

    As for PP on these images, I did some slight tweaks in Aperture on a few of them. Mostly minor color saturation, shadows, and sharpening. I don't have anything that corrects for distortion (as far as I know), so I didn't do anything like that. I think I just have a really good copy of the 18-200 VR.

    BTW, that's Trinity Church near Wall Street, in case you plan to visit it.
     
  9. OK, thanks William...
