    Hi all, sharing images of New York from my trip this year. NYC has always been one of my favorite city. Love the energy and beauty of this great place. Plenty of nice spots to take pictures as well. :)

    All images taken with E-M5. Filters - PhotosphereSG Haida filter kit

    Album and better res here ->

    Downtown Classic

    A classic view of Downtown Manhattan from Brooklyn.

    Top of the Empire

    A great view of downtown Manhattan from the top of Empire State Building. :)

    Modern Meets Tradition

    St. Patrick's Cathedral, Manhattan. NYC architecture juxtaposed..

    Look Up

    I have many shots from this angle, but I like this one with the lady looking up..



    Radio Calling


    Guggenheim's Curves

    Long exposure of Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

    A Walk Through the Window

    Through the beautiful arched windows in GCT...

    City Connection

    View of Brooklyn Bridge, connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan.

    Empire City

    View from Top of the Rock. It was drizzling when I went up and I had to shoot with one hand carrying an umbrella.


    It was a difficult shot for me as it was very windy. The wind was so strong that chairs were falling over. I had to hold on to the tripod while shooting and 40sec is the max under the circumstance.

    The Long View

    Another view of Downtown Manhattan from Brooklyn. Single shot exposure.

    Thanks for viewing. C&C welcome!

    I keep coming back to look at these pictures, and that makes it a winner for me.

    Well taken and processed pictures. Did you take the "Radio Calling" picture with a tripod too? Never been to NYC, but I thought NYC had no space on sidewalks to set up like that with all the people moving about.

    It was taken with a tripod and I stood very close to the edge of the sidewalk. I cropped a bit to remove the people on the right.

    Great shots!! Jane's Carousel at night looks awesome!

    May I suggest to anyone planning a trip to NYC to consider photographing the skyline from the NJ side. Liberty State Park in Jersey City(not sure how late they are open), Pier A Park in Hoboken (I proposed to my wife here...amazing view!), and Hamilton Park in Weehawken are some great spots to photograph the city.

    I am using Sirui T1204x tripod. For locations/rooftop where tripods are not allowed, I use Manfrotto 709 tabletop tripod.
