NYC: New Amsterdam

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Dez Santana, Sep 25, 2008.

  1. Before you ask, yes I do have a job :biggrin:

    NYC was once called New Amsterdam when the Dutch settled here in the 1600s, hence the title.

    D300 & 17-55mm (the workhorse) @ ISO 200. Landscape Picture Control used in-body. Who needs a D700??

    Ahem...I mean, "Yes, we know you work, Dez!!"

    Anywhoo - another stunning series - I especially like the Empire Fulton bridge shots.

    Actually, I like all your bridge shots - you do them well...

  8. Very nice Dez.... the one of the Manhattan bridge is pretty cool... Never thought of shooting it that way before...

    You don't need a D700... You are doing wonderfully with the D300! :)
     
  9. Thanks David!

    Thanks Leung. I took at that on 9/11/08. I noticed the couple in the center of the frame trying to take a photo of themselves, so I turned around. In a larger version of this photo you could see their flash light up their faces.
     
  10. I always love your work Dez. The last one (B&W) and the night shot of the bridge and park are the best of the set.
     
  11. Thanks Alex :smile:

    The shot of the bridge @ night was probably overexposed due to the distant lights but I liked it none the less.
