Bridges of New York

Post by Duck »

This past Sunday was My Photo Group's NY event, "Walking the Bridges of NY". I was a very long day with an entourage of 18 people but it was worth it. Here are a few shots from that day. I'll post additional ones as I process them.

This piece of graffiti was found on the west side walking path of the Manhattan Bridge. I thought it was rather appropriate for our trip.

This is the shot I wanted to add to my personal portfolio. Yes, it's been done numerous times but now I can say I did it too. ;)

Thanks Tom. It was a gorgeous day but a bit crowded due to Memorial Day weekend. I ended up walking the Brooklyn Bridge a total of three times. My legs are still sore. Photographically it wasn't the best day but socially we had a blast.

Looks like a fun and interesting day Duck. I have never had an opportunity to photograph New York but think it could make for some amazing days and very tired feet. I love the detail shots. The wide shots would drive me crazy because I would have to sit and wait for that nano second in time where no one was in my frame

On a slow day, maybe. Not on a Memorial Day weekend :D

I would love to go into the city on a rainy day. The shots would truly be phenomenal.

Hmmm...
I saw something somewhere here on the web where a feller took a huge number of shots, using a tripod, of a popular attraction that had people moving all around. He was then able to merge the shots and effectively remove the people.

Of course, this wouldn't work well for a walk about, but it might for a planned shot.

A neutral density filter with long exposure can have that effect. It's done a lot for the travel industry.
