Default Grand Central Station

Friday after work I walked to Grand Central Station to capture it under the "blue light" of the late afternoon.

The weather in NYC is much better now 50-55 degrees what makes nicer to walk the city and snap some pictures.

I like the results from my OMD and planing to print one of this shots to replace an old picture in my studio.

Marcelo,

These are really enjoyable shots, whenever I visit the city I usually park outside and take the commuter rail into grand central, as a kid in upstate NY it was from Poughkeepsie, these days from CT, but either way that experience of grand central serves as a start and an end to my time in the city. Your shots are great.

What lenses (9-18 FT and kit?) and did you use a ND filter on the first?

Nice shots. Love the shot with the Chrysler Building peeking up. Back in the 40's Grand Central Station was so much busier with all the trains that came in and out of there.

Thank you so much for the kind words, I'm glad you like it.

I used the 9-18mm and the 12-50mm.

The first picture is not a ND filter, just a 5 second exposure using ISO 100 and f/16

Thank you again and have a great day.

Thank you James,

That one is my favorite also. I shoot those pictures Friday afternoon and it is busy than other week days.

How do you like your new E3??

The food market in Grand Central is another interesting experience, beautiful and very clean place but the prices insane, dry aged beef $65/lb..!!!












I'm hungry now..!!

I really like the E-3 Marcello and I am glad I did not buy the E-1. Have not got serious with taking pics yet, just reading and learning about the features at this time. Since I only have one lens at present, my shooting will be pretty limited as to the types of shots I can take. I guess the zoom feature will be in my feet.

I have never been to New York (state or city) so I really do enjoy seeing and reading about it all.

Thanks Marcelo for your excellent photos. I can't imagine some of the prices in the market and I cannot imagine taking an evening stroll from 'home to Grand Central Station'.
