Hi

Just went to New York for a couple of days ...10..., and took some photos...something like 1000 or something like that :)

Anyway just uploaded some of them, didn't have the time to upload or edit / convert to JPEG more...but soon i will upload a couple more...



Anyway :

Please notice that i a am a complete newbie, just brought the camera a couple of months ago(a Alpha 700...my first dSLR) and this is the 1st time i ever tried to shoot in Raw and in any Manual Mode ...so please don't be too cruel.



Any Critics and Comments are more than welcome :)



I used a Sony 18-250 and in a couple of shots a Sony CZ 24-70 2.8 wich i "lost my head and lots of money" and brought in New York (yes i know i am a newbie and shouldn 't be using such expensives lenses :) )

J_P_P -- there's some advice http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/forum_posts.asp?TID=28010&PID=293333#293333 - here about posting pics, including from Flickr.

Try some direct linking of a selection of some very good looking shots.

Very nice set with great compositions. Hard to criticize these but maybe the PP on #2 removed some detail from the man that I would like to be able to see and #7 looks a bit dark on my screen. Well done.

Well, for a newbie, I'd say you're doing pretty well!

You've got some great shots here. The first skyscraper abstract is stunning. I can't say I've seen a shot quite like that before.

I also like the shot of the seagull and bridge. Very inventive. Edit: I might have been tempted to crop out the buildings beneath the bridge.

The one with the girl seen through the slot is very good, as well.

Others aren't too bad, either.

OK, you own one of the best lenses available for the Alpha mount. Challenge now: keep growing as a photographer and continue to put that serious hunk of glass through its paces.

Plus, keep posting for feedback. Dyxum is a great learning environment, for newies and pros alike.

I like the bridge and seagull also but rather than crop the buildings out I'd just clone them out.

Gee...thank you so much for your compliments... and remarks / Criticisms, alike. Nice to have some feeback, speacially when you are a newbie and you are not sure of anyhting, reallly :)

"Very nice set with great compositions. Hard to criticize these but maybe the PP on #2 removed some detail from the man that I would like to be able to see and #7 looks a bit dark on my screen. Well done. "

WELL i put in the gallery 2 versions of the #2 (the other version is darker), because i couldn't quite convert it hapilly to B&W... i really don't know how to use Paint Shop Pro ou Photoshop beyond the basics of cropping , Rotate and enchance the contrast / saturation and basic stuff like that. B&W conversion to be done well seems quite tricky sometimes , at least to get goog results I will try again the conversion after reading some stuff about converting in a magazine or 2 that i have lying around :) The same for the Clone tool you mentioned, i never tried, but i will try to experiment with it.

One Problem shooting Skyscrappers in NY (i shoot a couple more) is that sometimes there just isn't any "space" or "distance" to compose the image at least with a lens that starts with 24 mm (due to the conversion factor of 1.5)...and even in 18 mm (with my 18-250) seems kinda tricky sometimes. A Wider Lens would probably be better...or i can always but a Alpha 900 !!! lol ...kinda overkill no ? :)

I will try to convert some other photos that i took, and upload them in Flickr. When you took something like 1000+ photos (ok, many of them are just Turism stuff without any care or thought, Look and shoot ... in new york i felt on many ocasions , that i had to hurry to "see" everything the city has to offer)

Ken . . . good point. Not enough coffee yet. I had meant to write "clone" but it came out "crop." Go figure.

"I agree with pretty much what has been said by the others.

Thank you, but i really begin (like i said this was pretty much pratically the 1st time i ever tried to shot "something" beyond just simple point and shoot using Auto or Scene Modes ) to miss some Bases or Rules. I just do it by instict, and this is my first DSLR or Camera ...if you exclude the CellPhone ! Never even had a Compact or Bridge

Other thing i noticed is that when you are travelling (maybe some of this things happen to you a lot) and are a turist, is that you can't spend a lot of time Shoting Photographs or you will miss the "Turist" bit.
This happens to you, speacilly when you travel with Girlfriends or Family ?

I read some magazines, i begun understanding what is Depth of Field, Shutter Speed and so on... but...

That's why i am gonna go to a couple(3) Workshops "Introduction to Digital Phototography" about Composing, Technice and Photoshop (a Total of 75 Hours for the 3 WShops), because i really begin to notice that i 'd like some feedback like "Stop doing this...do it that way...This is good...this is bad" and some theoritcal and pratical notions of what i am doing.

@ Pirate: seems you're enjoying your trip very well. Did you already pick up your new lens(es)? Especially like the sculture/scraper shot and the pano. Is it a pano from multiple shots or just a severe crop of a WA shot.

@ J_P_P: First of all my compliments to the nice series. The shot with the billboard of the flashy girl and the non-flashy people in front is my favourite. Very well spotted !

Agree you need to balance. When making city trips I have the good fortune my wife and two daughters like to shop around a bit in large stores. My son and I stay outside and take some pictures. I'm trying to be concious (and not always successfull) to make sure the capturing and registration of the environment doesn't get more important then just enjoying it.

Great idea and you'll learn a lot. Make sure you don't lose your natural eye and only start following the "rules" that might be taught there.

@Pegelli

These were taken last year with A100 + f/1.7 50mm, Sigma 70-300 APO DG Macro and SAL 18-70mm. The pano shot is a series I took and stitched them to create the image, then cropped top/bottom. Will be getting new glass in 3 weeks when in FLA.

Wanna see more!

Well done Joe, I've never visited (now I don't need to ) Good selection of shots that give a snapshot of the city. I particularly like the way the Empire State disappears into the low cloud.

The tour continues. Very enjoyable. I remember hearing about the crazy weather in october. #9 Snowy Central Park has a lovely soft focus look a bit like a painting, was that deliberate ? whatever it works for me.

Poignant images relating to 9/11 which are right & proper when showing images of NY. I enjoyed the brief excursion showing the 'Halloween' people. My favourite here is probably the Skyline from Brooklyn bridge. Well done again Joe and thanks for showing me the 'Big Apple' while I enjoy my early morning cup of tea.

Great pictures. I like the way you've caught some of the older New York scenes. I was able to enjoy them and reminisce a bit.

In 1984, then 18, I took advantage of staying for some time in a friend's relative's posh high-rise apartment on East 51st, just a (big) block down from the UN. The apartment had a doorman, covered entrance, etc., just like those rich folk on TV.

One thing I remember in particular, however, is that my friend and I, considering my meager funds, chose to visit the World Trade center and ride to the top of it, instead of the Empire State building - the other choice - because the World Trade center was taller. There, one would ride a dedicated (very fast) elevator to the 107th floor, and then if so inclined, go to the roof to a razor-wire surrounded square raised catwalk - one couldn't even approach the edge - looking down had to be done from inside nose-to-window - somewhere I have pictures of the murky heights and the tiny things far below - not much unlike a window shot from an airplane. I was bummed, but since 9/11, that opinion has been reversed for obvious reasons.

Back then, also, the subways were still the old Graffiti covered, open-windowed, non-air-conditioned rides through tunnels of 98% humidity - Times Square was the porn-infested sin-town it was before its cleanup not long after. (We, being squares, never did experience the oblique entertainment venues, no regrets).

The photographer in me wishes I could go back and capture the way it was - the graffiti and debauchery of New York.

Roy,
That snow/sleet storm was quite sudden and unexpected. For someone from Australia it was quite exciting to see, but splashing through three inches of slushy gelato in trainers wasn't so much fun.
Those photos of Central Park in the snow were taken through the windows of The Metropolitan Museum, a warm and dry haven that we and quite a crowd of others headed for that afternoon.
The softness is partly due to the heavy snow falling, and in picture 7 there is also a bit of light reflection on the glass to the left, but I like the warm tone it gives, as part of that painterly feel.

@mstaben,
Thanks for your response.
This was our second visit to NY, the first having been in 1999 when we were so very impressed by all we did and saw. Of course it was after Giuliani's clean-up so it felt safe and friendly, and we were able to enjoy the many attractions in what must be the greatest city in the world in so many respects. However, we missed out on the grunge that I must say isn't a regret.
As part of that visit we went up to the World trade Centre's observation deck one morning, and like you, felt the views were somewhat compromised through glass whereas from the top of the Empire State or the Rockerfeller Centre you are in open air.
Having done that, we needed to book to visit the 9/11 memorial and pay our respects, and those photos are in Part 3 of this series.
I'd love to be able to rent or house-swap an apartment and live in New York for an extended period one day to get to know it better.
Joe

Hi Joe,

A very interesting series here and looks like you also had a good dose of changeable weather as well!

There's too many to comment on individually, though it does make for a fine 'walk through' type of posting so I have no issues there. What it does do for me is give me some glimpses of the places I never get to see the few times I am there on business - in those instances it's a drive in from NJ to the office; an all day meeting followed by a drive back out or, worse, the drag to either JFK or Newark (yes; I do know how to have fun....). So for that there are a few images here that, given the opportunity, I will make a bee-line for if I get the chance in the future!

Take out images of the set? The street scene nature of Alice Tully Hall (though you did clip the top...); the iconic Chrysler Building; The Wisdom in #9 - great viewpoint - and I was really taken with you taking what appears to be your life in your hands by standing in the middle of the street for Lower East Side in #14!

I will now go and hunt down the other sets in this series! Thanks for sharing thee and kind regards, Neil.

Hi Joe,

Some real contrasts in these scenes as well - buildings as well as weather!

There looks to be some very interesting detail possibilities in Ellis Island whilst the Liberty Silhouette would look really impressive cut down to a much smaller letter-box - I don't think the foreground adds a great deal but the focus needs to be on the statue and that imposing sky. The sleet shots are very impressive - as much for the time of year as anything - and the pick of that series is the Central park in #9; one can almost feel the tranquility that snow often brings to a scene in this one. The others are fine images of the closeness of New York living and the shot of the inside of the Empire State corridor is very interesting - have you thought about changing the WB to make it less yellow and see what details pop up out of the floor in this one?

Another fine series and I just love the 'walk around' feel these have so far.

Thanks for posting and on to set 3!

Kind regards, Neil.

Neil,
Must be very frustrating just rushing into and out of New York on business.
It's my plan one day to try to get to know it better by getting an apartment for a month or more.
Thanks as always for your considerate and helpful feedback.
Joe

Neil,
Glad you've liked my posts and pictures, and your responses are always helpful.
The white balance in the Empire State corridor is an accurate rendering of what it looks and feels like. You can see some whiter light through the side doorway. 'Correcting' it would perhaps bring out some aspects but would not reflect what it is really like.
I look forward to your comments on part 3.
Joe

Hi Joe,

This is a very striking if not eclectic selection you have given us here! We range from the sombre mood (and rightly so) of 9/11 and the memorial through Halloween and on to Brooklyn and Central Park.

The 9/11 images are well presented and suit the rather quiet mood of the location - they are a fitting set of images covering the redevelopment there. The Halloween images, by comparison, are bright and gaudy with the folks clearly enjoying themselves. The images from Brooklyn Bridge are the most endearing to me - I was always a sucker for the skyline anyway - and the addition of the detail shot is a nice touch.

Finally, the shots from Central Park show a very different place to that in the earlier thread with all that snow - almost warming and welcoming here!

A grand series and I must go and find the other travelogue series.

Thanks for posting and kind regards, Neil.

Neil, darosa,
Thanks for the feedback and comments - most welcome. It's what make posting here so satisfying.
I was very struck by how rapidly the weather changed during our New York stay. An unseasonal day long snow storm followed by clear (cold) sunny days, followed by more balmy autumn weather. The snow was very damaging as all the trees were still in full leaf, so there was lots of clearance of fallen branches and trees going on in the parks and elsewhere afterwards.
In the coming while I'll have pleasure in posting my Chicago, Berlin and Munich photos.
Watch this space....

FWIW, mine were taken with a Sony A100 + 18-70mm kit lens and Minolta AF 50/1.7 (they were my first images in A-Mount and were never corrected in terms of PP/horizon level etc), so your gear should produce blinding results

These were taken on a dull day, therefore are a little muted.

They are from couple of months ago, I went to Manhattan for a walk with my girlfriend (I had my camera and she had hers of course ) and we spend most of the time in Time Square. I took the last one from NJ couple of weeks ago on my way to work (with 16-50 lens and cropped)

Taken with A77 + Sigma 18-250 - not the best lens or the sharpest but very useful because I did not have to carry a bag and change lenses, so every lens has it's purpose.

@Tront Nice! What time did you take these? I ask because clearly you used a tripod and for the second you'd have either been in the middle of the road or at least an area that was usually crawling with pedestrians whenever I was there. There don't seem to be many people moving through the frame in the third either.

@Tront:
Amazing images - never seen NYC looking that way before. Must have been very challenging conditions but obviously you and your gear coped very well. Might be useful to number the images for the purposes of comment and feedback. Also, it would be nice to know what camera, lens and settings you used.
They're all great, but my particular favourites are the two cyclists riding into Times Square, and the following one of the close-up of the snowy bicycle locked onto the pole although perhaps it might benefit from a touch of straightening?

Thanks, but it is not the time Manhattanhenge, it happens twice a year. In 2013 this was Tuesday, May 28 and Saturday, July 13. For best effect, position need walk on 34th Street. 42nd, 57th on west, and several streets adjacent to them. The Empire State building and the Chrysler building render 34th street and 42nd streets especially striking vistas. Now is not the time, and I made the shot at 8 Avenue, it is the reflection of sunlight from buildings that are opposite, and the sun on my picture on the right side of (approximately) 45 degrees.

Do you have a day job? You could make money doing photo tours of NY. I thought I had some out-of-the-way off-the-beaten-path photos, but you have the place dialed in. Those last two seal the deal; I thought I had good shots from the park at the end of the bridge, you have great shots.

I thank you for your appreciation, but I'm not a professional photographer to carry out similar photo tours. I know very well the city and its history, but for the work I'm not thought. Because this only my hobby
