NYC - View from 27th Floor

Posted by Yonatan (New York, United States) on 30 May 2011 in Cityscape & Urban.

My friend Mike invited my wife and I to his apartment for drinks on the evening of 5/29/11. They live in a building which allows them access to the roof, 27 floors up. Of course I brought my camera and took a few pictures.

This photo was taken from a building located on Lexington Avenue and 24th Street. This the view looking is looking west towards Madison Square Park.

I just purchased the Olympus E-5 and I decided to bracket some frames to create an HDR of this scene. My older camera, the Olympus E-5 would only allow me to bracket a total of three frames, making HDR shots a bit of work. The E-5 fortunately let's me bracket up to 7 frames which makes the task of image acquisition much easier and less time consuming.

Thank you for taking some time to take a look at my photographs. I hope you enjoy your stop at my blog.

I invite you all to visit frequently and leave comments and feedback. I would really appreciate constructive criticism that will help me improve. You don't need to be a photographer to help me, tell me what you like and don't like. If you have any suggestions of interesting things to shoot or fun techniques to try I'd also love to know.

Best wishes,
