Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn. The Manhattan Bridge provides a vital vehicle and subway link between Brooklyn and Manhattan in New York City (NYC), NY.

Shot the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges in the course of a few hours after work. This is the first in that set.

Headed to the PATH train walking up Broadway in New York City (NYC), NY. Used my sand bag pod as a “tripod” on the sidewalk. Looking to do more shots like this late at night when there are very few people out in the city.

HDR 8 exposures processed with Photomatix 3.1

The view south-east tonight from my office building at 7th ave and 29th street in New York City, NY. A different shot than “en fuego” with a different processing.

Not sure if I like how this turned out but hey 🙂

A lightning strike captured from my apartment in Jersey City, NJ. I was using my old camera (Nikon Coolpix 8700) and was lucky enough to capture this.

The view south-east tonight from my office building at 7th ave and 29th street in New York City, NY.

This was a very long exposure (498 seconds) which allowed me to process the image preserving light in certain areas and darkening in other areas.

a cold winter’s night

A long and very cold exposure of Jersey City and New York City in the background. This was shot from the roof in 20mph wind and a temp of 7f. This was one of the shots where I used an iso of 1000 by mistake and did not discover until I was home – sorta defeated the purpose of the long exposure.

Almost did not post this image since it lacks clarity but I like the colour and I’m not going to waste some frostbite on my fingers :).

So much in one New York City block…

This was one of those evenings where I couldn’t see anything worth shooting and I did what I always do in these situations and that is to stop and just rest on a step and look around. This was directly across from where I was sitting and did not notice until a bus pulled away. Really like how it turned out.

A very long exposure of Jersey City, the Trump Plaza, with the New York City river line in the background. I will be getting my d300 cleaned today :).
