Default My trip to Manhattan

Didn't get to see as much as I wanted but saw enough that I will return.
I just processed the basic JPG's on this set to see how they turned out.
I was trying to get a night shot and set the ISO to 2500 and then forgot about it so some images are noisier than I wanted.









This one didn't turn out that well but it's my best shot of busy Grand central

I see you've come to visit me . I work near Grand Central so the locations are all very familiar to me. Since I work here, I take for granted many interesting shots. So I always check out the newest NYC tour books at Barnes & Noble, etc., for ideas. I find some interesting shots here already I might not have to do that anymore . Contrasts mainly -- old and new (gothic and contemporary) and curves and straights. Very nice shots -- composition and processing.

For the night shots slow down your shutter speed instead of cranking up the ISO taking for granted you are using a tripod.
With the pics where you have ghosted people, if you used Photomatix there is a deghosting feature which works incredibly well. Another approach is to take a series of HDR shots (camera on tripod) every few minutes. The lighting is pretty constant and as the people move around you can end up covering all the places they were standing, so in the end by layering each of the HDR images you can simply erase people to expose the spot where they were standing. In the first shot that building is either gay headquarters, or the Skittles building -- catch the rainbow, taste the rainbow.
