Nice series. It looks like you had a nice tour of the city. Not 100% sure why, but I'm drawn to #'s 6, 11 and 14 in particular. I have to say that I think # 17 sux... but that might just be the New Yorker in me coming out .

Thanks for the comments and feedback Zach.
I'll get around to posting photos from the other places I visited over the coming days.
Didn't get to take photos of Yankee Stadium or Wrigley Field to balance the ledger when I was in New York or Chicago. Coming from Australia, I don't get baseball.

No worries. Looking forward to the rest of your posts... I still have posts from my trip to Sydney and New Zealand that I haven't posted... and that was from last April.

Hi Joe,
Nice set!
I love the photos from the Prudential building (also #17 ). I usually cannot get nice images through the glass.
I also like #1, #4 and #9 very much because they represent Boston as I am used to it.
Tal especially likes #8.

BTW, I miss some photos of other areas of Boston - you need to come again next year...

One minor error. #5 is the Boston Public Garden, not Boston Common. They're two separate places divided by Charles Street.

Shay,
Thanks for the comments/feedback. This is just a very small sampler of my hundreds of Boston photos, but you're right - in the few days we spent there, we obviously just scratched the surface. A revisit will have to be arranged in the fullness of time.
With respect to shooting through the tinted glass of an observation deck, or a bus, I find I can correct the colour cast (white balance tint and temperature), and even cut through some of the haze (with a bit of contrast adjustment and sharpening), using PP - in my case I use Apple Aperture.
Joe

I think under the circumstances this qualifies. It is not the location but the people who make a city great. I visited Boston a few years ago, and have to say that this was one of the places I have been made most welcome. These messages to and from your great city are as much as part as the wonderful historic buildings throughout the city.



F-Stop? F-Stopped! Anyone know how to get it going again???My Flickr

@Waldo_Posth, a very fine set. I'd be interested to know what camera and lens you used.
Just wondering whether you have lashed out on a tilt shift lens, or whether the perfect parallel lines are achieved via post processing, or simply lens choice and viewer angle?
