    Had my first visit to New York last week. Busy with training and a nasty cold, but had to walk around in the evenings and look how the city looks through the 17mm 1.8 lens.

    Thanks everyone for your comments!!

    Thanks, my absolute favorite too! The moment I took it, I knew this was my best shot from the whole trip. It was a real pot shot, didn't even look at him or the camera, just swung the camera towards the cart while walking by. So happy it came out quite all right.

    Awesome. Was Batman asking for directions back to Gotham?

    Thanks! I have no idea! I was walking back to the hotel - extremely drunk - from a Rangers game in Madison Square Garden. There I suddenly see these two superheroes on the street having an argument. A true WTF moment?! I took the shot and continued walking thinking what the heck just happened...?

    Your Batman looks suspiciously like Batman I met when I was last in NY in 2010....

    He was great fun. Spent about 10 mins chatting random stuff about places to eat & things to see in NY. We thought he was just dressed up for Halloween :happy-084:

    The DOF in that first shot is pretty amazing. I'm surprised that's just at f/4.

    Love the picture with the man in the food stand, that is really a great one! And I agree on the funfactor of those two 'grounded' supermen. Somehow I would be less surpriced to see them zooming over head...
