New York Part III: Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Skyline by Night

by Michael on September 10th, 2010

Brooklyn Bridge I

The Manhattan skyline seen from Brooklyn at night. Quite impressive.

You are looking at the main reason for this New York visit. Well, maybe not the main reason but at least it was on the to-do list. And important enough for me to take the subway from Brooklyn to Manhattan and back (a 1 hour trip) just to get my tripod. Btw, my apologies to The Roots for leaving in the middle of their concert to get the tripod in time for sunset… OK, I’ll admit, it was one of the main reasons for going to New York.

These shots were taken on and just next to the Brooklyn Bridge. With shutter speeds up to 25 seconds it would have been impossible without a tripod. The tricky part in post production was to get the white balance and colors right. However, after a while I just got fed up with all the colors and chose to go b/w instead.

Should I have kept the color versions? I added two color photos at the end. You’ll be the judge – leave a comment!
