New York from the top of the rock

By supervm2
I took this in October 2010 The shot was hand held so might have a little shake I have straightened and removed a cloud and the lights from helicopters from the shot.
I think the adjustment give a good image overall I am sure it could be improved any comment would be a great help.

You must have very steady hands Peter because I can't see much evidence of the shakes Smile

Good pic lifted by the sky. It's a tad noisy though so I ran your pic through my Topaz Denoise filter - see mod. I applied the change just to the sky as the programme dims the lights elsewhere in the pic.

The main tower is perhaps just a little too near the left hand edge of the frame. But it's a memorable shot.

Best wishes

it is indeed a fabulous view and the colours are super but the previous members are quite right,
to lift it from an everday shot into a top shot it needed a firm tripod to hold things steady and allow a smaller aperature to maintain a really comprehensive depth of field and maintain maximum sharpness. (which it unfortunately lacks).

i agree that the tower is just a little too close to the edge but thats unfair as i dont know what was adjacent to the building and it may have been impossible to compose otherwise.

really i have to say that the shot is memorable, and i do like it, but overall it lacks a lot of the quality that is needed for an image of this type.

best regards
