Fish Under Queensboro

Back to New York for todays post!  I really miss not having a big city and lots of water around me here in central CA, so I was in my glory when I traveled to NYC last year!  I really hadn’t done much with long exposure photography, but really had success with shooting at or after Blue Hour, when the lack of light forced me to use long exposure…  I especially love all the bridges in NYC and I decided to capture the massive skyline by using my fisheye lens (You can check out my version under the Brooklyn bridge here…).  Since I centered the horizon (take that rule of thirds), there is minimal distortion to the skyline itself, but I was able to capture an ultra wide angle shot!  The reflections were just an added bonus!  This took me a couple tries because barges and the sky-train kept moving into my scene creating unwanted light trails…
