This is a photo of the Freedom Tower, taken from bottom viewing up. The shape of the tower almost makes it look like a pyramid when photographed from this position. Maybe the photo would’ve been greater with a blue sky, but at the same time, this is a place that calls for reflection and respect, so a damp milky sky suited quite well.
As I wrote in my first photo I tried out a few different kind of photo styles in these NY-photos. This one is kept really clean, trying to benefit from the situation.
This is a photo of the IRT Bridge in Harlem. We went to a close by steak house at a night with heavy showers (actually there were flood warning sent out), which created a perfect opportunity to benefit from the street lights, and the dark skies.
I’ve added some sharpening, cropped it slightly and lowered the blue a bit in Lightroom.
Last week I visited New York for some work, and while being there I also spent some time taking photos, so I thought that I would share some of them here.
It’s tricky taking photos of a city that’s been so well documented already, but I tried to find some new angles, and some new styles in the photos.
The first photo is taken at a long distance with a fast aperture to get it dark, then I pulled the aperture up afterwards in Lightroom. This created the grainy and foggy effect since all the details will not be seen. After that I added some sharpening.

This is a great time-lapse of New York during the hard days when Sandy moved in over land. If you like photography I think you will enjoy the angles and composition in many of the scenes.
Best wishes to all of you that were in the middle of this storm.
Hope for a quick recovery to a normal situation
