Chance to Win DREAM TRIP

Early twilight, Queensboro Bridge.
I was looking through some old photography stuff and found a 4-point cross filter that I decided to play with. It might reek of 1970s glamour pictures, but I think it seems the thing to do with bridge lights.
Well, it wasn’t as easy as I expected. First off, it messes with the exposure by throwing in extra light. Secondly, the damned thing makes it difficult to autofocus what with all of those sharp lines (this is actually mentioned in my camera’s manual). One interesting side-effect is that the usual 6-point starburst I get from my lens’ aperture iris in long exposures is gone.

Manhattan is the oldest and the most densely populated of the five boroughs of New York City. Located primarily on the island of Manhattan at the mouth of the Hudson River, the boundaries of the borough are identical to those of New York County, an original county of the state of New York. The borough and county consist of Manhattan Island and several small adjacent islands: Roosevelt Island, Randall’s Island, Wards Island, Governors Island, Liberty Island, part of Ellis Island, Mill Rock, and U Thant Island; as well as Marble Hill, a very small area on the mainland bordering the Bronx. The original city of New York began at the southern end of Manhattan, expanded northwards, and then between 1874 and 1898, annexed land from surrounding counties.The County of New York is the most densely populated county in the United States, and one of the most densely populated areas in the world, with a 2010 population of 1,585,873 living in a land area of 22.96 square miles (59.5 km2), or 69,464 residents per square mile (26,924/km²). It is also one of the wealthiest counties in the United States, with a 2005 per capita income above 0,000. Manhattan is the third-largest of New York’s five boroughs in population, and its smallest borough in land area.Manhattan is a major commercial, financial, and cultural center of both the United States and the world. Anchored by Wall Street in Lower Manhattan, New York City vies with the City of London as the financial capital of the world and is home of both the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. Many major radio, television, and telecommunications companies in the United States are based here, as well as many news, magazine, book, and other media publishers.Manhattan has many famous landmarks, tourist attractions, museums, and universities. It is also the location of the United Nations Headquarters. It is the center of New York City and the New York metropolitan region, hosting the seat of city government and a large portion of the area’s employment, business, and entertainment activities. As a result, residents of New York City’s other boroughs such as Brooklyn and Queens often refer to a trip to Manhattan as "going to the city", despite the comparable populations between those boroughs.

The Pond on a Spring Day

Was a lovely Spring Day yesterday so headed into the City with Wifey, went to a couple of shops she was interested in going to and then popped and strolled around Central Park for a while, I decided to try and get out of my comfort zone and take some shots of people and actually be seen taking them rather than doing it at Max zoom from across a street or whatever, or like people in this shot,
This shot is of the Pond taken on Gapstow bridge
