On my last photo tour to the Big Apple I was able to stop at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. This waterfront park is a real New York gem that is loved by the local crowd and tourists alike. This treasure of a park has stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, Brooklyn Bridge and Williamsburg Bridge.
Pier 1 is the place to be for this shot. This photography location makes for great New York City Skyline Photography. It has wood pilings that work perfectly as foreground features and beautifully lead a viewer into the picture. I was on my own when I arrived before sunset. The weather called for clearing skies with a few lingering clouds. Equipped with a neutral density filter to lengthen exposure times I was able to create dreamy water effects in the East River and convey cloud movement within the sunset sky while the NYC skyline remained in sharp focus.
Aperture in this NYC photo image was set to f/10 providing an exposure time of 20 seconds at an ISO setting of 200. During routine digital post processing I removed dust spot, adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final photograph of Big Apple.
Good light and happy photo making!
