    Some VERY nice photographs in these sets. I'm interested in the processing you used for the first one of the NYC taxi. Its clearly way over the top but I think it works really well for that shot.

    You hit up both coasts and captured them quite well. Please do tell more of you post processing. HDR or faux HDR?

    I know, I was extremly lucky, cause I was there for only a few days, but I got to see it both in fog and in full glory during a sunny day.

    Thank you.
    The first taxi was done by extracting 3 differently exposured JPEGs from RAW file (-1 EV, 0 EV, +1EV) and merging them into HDR by using Photomatix HDR option.
    The same method I used with this photo, but I think cab looks better.

    Thanks! NYC cab is HDR, as described above.

    Thank you.
    To all - It would also help if you could point me what photos could be done better by using different crop or post-processing :thumbup:
