Thanks, Mark.

When I took the pictures above, I had a Tamron 18-200mm. For the Saint Patrick's Cathedral picture, I was backed into the Atlas statue across the street to fit the Cathedral's more or less full facade inside the frame, and in portrait mode at that.

Now that I have a Tamron 10-24mm I can take a landscape picture of Saint Patrick's Cathedral and the GE Building at Rockefeller Center as well.

If you notice the sky has turned from the drab gray into a bright blue, maybe that's because things are looking rosy from this end of my new Tamron barrel...

I must confess that your photo's of New York simply amaze me. I visited in July of 2010 and took plenty of photos but they don't look anything like yours. Coming back to New York in April and you have inspired me to try and do better this time around. By the way that new Tamron 12-24mm is amazing I might have to get myself one.

Thank you, quartz. I think my use of DPHDR, Topaz, and/or Photoshop effectively eliminates the smog, traffic, noise, and smell of the city.

#11) This is the sort of "cramped" quarters I'm shooting pictures from. There are a lot of places like this. You can see one or two landmarks -- for instance if you stand at one corner you'll see both the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings or even Grand Central, the MetLife Building, and the Chrysler Building -- but there is no space to back into so you can frame all in one shot. No question the ultra-wide angle lens is liberating. I just hope I use it to take good pictures...

Best regards/Daniel

Thanks, Daniel.

#12) I took this picture a month ago. I was playing with Photoshop effects for rain and lightning.
