So-so big apple

This was taken during my recent trip to the States.

It's a typical tourist-type shot of the New York City Skyline. I believe I'm allowed to post some boring, but standard shots once in a while.

And FYI, these shots AREN'T easy to execute properly. This one in particular was an HDR (High Dynamic Range) image based on 3 seperate RAW exposures. That's why I have an incomplete EXIF up for it.

WOW !!! Its awesome !
I am still holding grudge because you refuse to take a dash to DC while you were at the big apple. I like the shot, you should consider framing it up.
Wow, this is gorgeous. Very nice perspective and the lighting is just awesome.
