Very nice VV. Love the night shots.

there is a little vig in the shots, what wide angle did you used? You may want to go with a slim cp-l. I like the vig effect. It works out nicely on the shots actually.

How crowed was it at the falls. It is normally pack in the summer.

Thanks, Paul. My wife (Vi) was laughing when she read your post. She said you lived so close to Niagara Falls.

Thanks, spy. The rain sleeves look like a useful thing to keep in my bag. I'll get one the next time I go to B&H.

Thanks, Ordo. I'm not sure why you can't view #6 and #7. In any case, I reproduced them here using a different server:

#6) If you ever get tired of watching rainbows...

#7) ...you can always hit the rides.

Thanks, shoturtle. I actually have the (Hoya) slim cpl. I added a slight vignette on photos I take. I'm glad you liked it.

This is actually my second slim cpl. I broke the first one. I was testing it at Tudor City and rotating it to see the minimum and maximum polarization positions. While turning it I actually unscrewed it and it fell 100 feet to the sidewalk below. So I ordered a second one.

Yes Niagara Falls summer crowd was packed. It doesn't show much crowd in #6 but to the left of the building on the left (the Visitor Center) is where most of the crowd was. We left close to midnight and there was still a big crowd. Not just at the promenade but in the streets away from the Falls, too. Many were in groups some wearing party dresses (women in black short-skirt one-piece dresses and high heels). I took some street shots when the night was still early.

#10) The Frankenstein building has the best looking facade, IMO.

#11) Crowd in front of the FX Ride Theater.

#12) Crowd in front of Dave & Busters.

Youre shots are all very good Billy. All the signs are razor sharp. You've really captured the feel of the place.

Thanks, Paul. It was fun. It was even more fun than Times Square because of all the rides and good-naturedly feeling. Tiring but fun.
