Another image from the recent trip to New York. I bought a very lightweight tripod in New York (not ideal) but it stood up to the buffeting wind and 2 minute exposure - looks sharp enough to me. Now buying from the B+H superstore, now that's axe pertinence!

I'm really pleased how this turned out. I would have liked to have explored more but -6C and a biting wind wind, and limited access to areas due to Hurricane Sandy put pay to that.

Tho the Pizza at Grimaldis was worth it (best Pizza I've ever had)

I didn't want to risk my Lee Big Stopper, this is with the HiTech version, and HiTech grads.

Yep, was 100 seconds 2 stop HD grad for main exposure, and about 120 second for brighter exposure (sun came out too) - took about 6 tries to get it right.
