Looking Up

I was sitting in a park at Liberty and William Streets waiting for an appointment and looked up to see Chase Manhattan Plaza (right) and the new Liberty Plaza apartment tower (left) soaring high into the sky.

Grand Central Station - Panorama

Trying out the new panorama feature on the iPhone 5 - taken from the Apple Store at Grand Central Station, looking towards the Vanderbilt Avenue side. The iPhone selected ISO 3200 so there's a considerable amount of noise (I already cleaned some of it with Nik Define). While I'm not too happy with the overall image quality of this particular photo (noise & sharpness) I am impressed with how well the panorama mode works stitching the images together. Given the lighting conditions the iPhone selected f/2.4, 1/120sec, ISO 3200.

New and Old New York

Another "peeking" building photo - this one from The Highline. The.building in the foreground with the sloping facade is the Associated Press headquarters at W. 33rd Street. The modern building peeking thru at the the center is (I think) the Bank America tower in midtown.

Philadelphia Electric Company

The Philadelphia Electric Company Building taken from a New Jersey Transit train crossing the Delair Bridge on the Atlantic City line. This railroad bridge spans the Delaware River linking Philadelphia, PA with New Jersey. The building looks very interesting but I don't know if it's still being used. This was shot 4:3 and cropped to 16:9 to cut away reflections from overhead lights inside the train.
