Useful for small size repro but I bet it is full of noise in the corners. You should in reality shoot this image again with your updated camera/lens. Not only will it be cleaner as regards noise/artifacts but it will also be a more useful size.

Super great; techical, cool values to the shot; no warmth needed; This is NY; live at night; other cities appear to sleep or take a breather in the night skyline shots; your city lives.

Oh yeah. . .you know what a duotone is! This is WONDERFUL!!!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2006 07:09:47 PM
Not bad, Steve....! 13th, but lucky for you - you really got the feel of the city in the cloudy mist with your exposure, and did well to retain detail for a semi-panoramic crop (that 640px limit is a bind sometimes).

I love the tone you used for this picture. On top of that, this is the definition of tack-sharp.

Very cool image. I really like the washed out areas and high contrast. I think it really adds to the mood.

I love the blue cast. I've taken a few cityscapes of NYC and I love the way the city lights up the sky, but it always seems brown to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 10:29:32 PM
I like it. The blowouts are not a big deal to me and seem to actually add to the feel. Good job! 9

I can almost hear the sounds of the saxophone belting out a tune about the city . The city skyscrapers and harbor are decked out in hues of blue and black - the cities 'tuxedo' that it dons when putting on the ritz. The city light sparkle in the night. This is a very visually appealing photo.
