Brooklyn Evenings

Shot:
Out in Brooklyn Bridge Park at what I think is the most photographed spot of downtime Manhattan getting a classic shot. I was out with a friend and we were looking for Sunset that day and didn’t get much of it. There was a lot of clouds in the way but I you can see the orange glow in the background of what would have been a great sunset without all the thick clouds we got. I did get some stretch in the clouds and some great color. This shot did not require much touch up to it.

Unexpected Sunrise

Shot:
I was out with the intention to capture the sunrise over New York City from lower Jersey City near Liberty State Park. I was all lined up, tripod set, camera focused just waiting and shooting some pre-sunrise shots. I was looking around and noticed right to my left was this amazing color and clouds in the sky that I just had to capture. I have since decided that it is not always about the subject of the photo and sometimes you catch the most beautiful frames sometimes just by looking around. I ended up with a sunrise over a random building in Liberty State Park.

Low Tide Sunset

Shot:
I shoot here often so the location needs no description. I was going for a nice sunset as I get out of work now closer to the time of the sunset so I don’t have to sit and watch them from my desk anymore. The tide was so low you can see under the wood structure.

Think Coffee

Shot:
Was out doing some roaming, shooting, eating and drinking in NYC. I saw this coffee shot and light the look of the logo as well as the name and thought it would make a neat frame. Decided to shoot it bracketed so I could make an HDR Blend out of it.
