    Dez, Not sure what a circular polarizer is but these shots are excellent. The Mayor's office is the best. Did you stick the camera thru the gate?
  3. Thanks Brad. I use the Nikon CPII Thin circular polarizer. I used to have a 72mm and changed it to a 77mm, so they would fit all my lenses, including the 18-200 VR with a step ring.

    Yes, I got City Hall through the fence. One day I will get in there (Bloomberg is my employer) and take a full shot w/no obstructions :biggrin:
  4. nice series, dez
    as usual

    i like all of them
  5. Thanks Greg. Appreciate it :smile:
  6. Thanks Chris!
  7. very cool pictures fav is still the one of Manahattan Bridge between the buildings. I love the changes in perspective. Really like all the B&Ws too.
    What is a Zephyr boat?
    Keep posting its like a mini tour of NYC
  8. Thank you Barb. I retook that Manhattan Bridge photo today. I wanted it wider.

    The Zephyr is a tour boat that goes around Manhattan.
  9. Please tel me you weren't driving when you took #2 & 3. Please? It looks like the passenger seat perspective. But please put me at ease?
  10. Nice shots Dez.... as you know, I have always liked your shot of #1. Very nice. Seems like you like the Brooklyn Brg, eh? Hehe... you and I both.

    I dunno why you need to shoot through the fence at City Hall... you can pretty much walk right up to the building. The fountain there is quite nice.

    like always great shots,
    but I wanted to know: :rolleyes: how many pictures you have taken to the bridge? :rolleyes: maybe you can try from the river, I mean, under the water... :rolleyes:

    keep sharing
  12. Oh Rich. I'll put you at ease. I was in the passenger seat :wink:
  13. Thank you. Shot #1 isn't the original shot that you saw a few months back. I retook that shot yesterday for a wider view at 17mm. And yes, I love the BB :tongue:

    Yes, i know about City Hall. Used to work across the street:



  14. Thank you Gabriel. I have taken many photos of the Brooklyn Bridge and from every angle.

    To answer your question, you can view more here:
  15. #1's awesome, Dez!
  16. Nice set Dez.
    The B&Ws work well.
  17. Great shots, the first three perspectives are terrific, I really like the treatment of #1.
  18. Nice shots.... a little closer and you might see Bloomberg in his cubicle! :biggrin:
  19. The b&w shots are stunning Dez, especially the first 2. Well done my friend.

    God Bless,
