Hi guys - I am traveling with limited wifi so I had to upload the photo from my phone after emailing it to myself. I can assure everyone I have a giant file size on my home computer but I guess from the mobile upload it didn't work. Ah well!

Ughh..  Last night I entered a photo which received 10 saves vs 2 deletes, which I am honored so thank you.  However, there were a few nitpicks.  I just looked at another photo from the shoot which is a wider shot and I think this seems to address all of the nitpicks.  I was wondering if this could be voted on and I'd enter this instead -- or was the original photo better off?   Do you guys like the zoomed in bridge or wider shot more?  Thanks.

Before and After  - 
 
I was wondering if I could get an informal vote for which photo looks more pleasing?  Yes I realize this photo has a ton of problems.  It actually started pouring about 30 seconds after I took this so I didn't have proper time to set up my shot, I focused on packing up and getting out of there. Also, this was from the Manhattan Bridge which is so shaky with trains roaring by, its almost impossible to not get any camera shake.   Regardless, if I had to salvage the photo, which looks better or is it just not salvageable?   Thanks in advance!

K...  I  like this it has an Escher like quality save#1

Tim Flack2:31 AM
Thought the same thing Kathy, looks like an Escher linocut - which is no bad thing! ;-)

I really like this - even though it's a bit flat, maybe

Nice patterns #save3

Jeff Grundman9:05 AM (edited)
It's flat, and crooked, lacks fine detail, particularly apparent in the center plant, but the content saves it.  Great lines and pattern. #save4  

Kim Llewellyn Weitzman8:56 AM
#save5 I love the geometry this offers to the viewer

Nice composition, but shadow detail brought out far too much. You've lost all sense of depth. #delete1

Oleg Perejogin11:22 AM
Processing brought out the pattern. #save9  

Harrison Roberts11:39 AM
I like the way the textures blend together. #save10  

Evan Fogel12:59 PMEdit
thanks everyone!  +Elizabeth Hahn  , like +Oleg Perejogin  said, processing brought out the pattern.  It was a purposeful decision I made so that everything blends together but perhaps you'd enjoy the original image more, which shows greater depth.  I'd be happy to send it your way if you'd like to compare

+Steven Adler its a little uncouth.  Poor etiquette if you ask me.  These photos are like all the hall of fame.  Everyone has a fair chance to vote in the voting pool.  I've never seen anyone else voting to delete a photo that was already elected to the hall of fame.

Hi there.  I am interested in taking daylight photos of waterfalls getting the frozen water effect, etc.   Is an ND Filter absolutely necessary for achieving an optimal look?  Is lightroom capable of doing an ND Filter's job?  I appreciate any advice or other tips/tricks.  Thanks!

That is the lens I used a 77-82 so that I could use the Vari on both lenses.

I was not around yesterday, but I like this one. You should just straighten it (see the skyscraper on the right). #save

I much prefer this version over the tighter shot of yesterday. #save2   It does not feel crowded, and you also caught some nice light trails and good water reflections.

Michael SeneschalApr 12, 2013
Whatever received 10 votes should be entered.... because it was good enough to receive 10 saves on its own.

Nice shot.  I can actually read the road signs clearly in case I couldn't figure out where I was.  The tall buildings on the right balance nicely with the heavy water/bridge on the left.  Pleasing and realistic lighting and a nice sky.  I think there might be a sensor dust spot in the sky, but I'll call it a UFO and give you a #save4

Retel TulioApr 12, 2013
Nice shot, I like the composition and light, but I liked the other one better. The bridge was very nice there. #save5

"Lots of Dottos", was the name I used to dance under.

It's pretty amazing.  It's probably the retired Air Force speaking, but is it possible to fix the flag? #save7

+Todd Lounds  very perceptive....there's so much detail in the image i think you can even see into some of the windows in some of the buildings.  I don't think getting a clear flag would be technically possible because it was a super windy night and these are very long exposures.  So what you are seeing is the flag blowing in the wind.  I could fix it in photoshop but I'm kind of against the idea of digitally adding anything to a photo that isnt really there

Rafael FariasApr 12, 2013
+Jay Gould when did you start giving free passes on sensor dust? There's one that's clear as day and another that's not that much harder to see left of that. There are also 2 dead pixels in the same region.

Don't get me wrong, I like the photo. I would actually prefer a pano of both images, but there are some very basic issues in both issues that should be fixed. I don't fel I'm nitpicking because I also take cityscapes, so I understand it. If this was a portrait I would likely give pases on some issues because I'm not past them myself. Almost no fringing on this one, so better in that respect.

Is it possible to go slightly to the left of your shooting position in this photo so that the Freedom Tower is not obstructed?

Evan FogelApr 12, 2013Edit
+Rafael Farias is that sensor dust from the camera or lens? How do I get rid of that and is it something that's really bad for the camera long term if I do nothing and leave it alone?

Rafael FariasApr 12, 2013
Camera sensor. It's like it sounds, just dust. Not an issue other than it appears in photos, particularly long exposures. Just something to watch for and clone out in whatever processing software you use.

Nev NelsApr 12, 2013
Is this #save8 ? Lots of small issues are small issues.  This is the best photo I've seen you post, +Evan Fogel

Thanks +Nev Nels  that means a lot.  I took that photo yesterday so I guess I'm going in the right direction.  +Rafael Farias The problem with moving to get the full freedom tower is that the angle completely changes and the landscape does not look as attractive.

entrance to Gotham City  -- i should mention the difficulty in getting this image because its taken from the Manhattan Bridge, which has a train roaring a foot away every minute.  The vibrations were a huge challenge.
