Shooting New York City at night in 30 minutes

I shot all images in that album while walking back from a +Rick Sammon workshop at the Explorer's Club to Grand Central Terminal within 30 minutes. All pictures were shot handhold and using fairly slow lenses - the Canon 24-105 f/4 and the Canon 16-35 f/2.8 - I probably shouldn't call an f/2.8 a slow lens, I know...

The weather was absolutely fantastic as it stopped raining just a few minutes after I left the Explorer's club giving me awesome, wet reflective roads.

I was using poles and dumpsters as tripods and all are single exposures = no HDR.

Check the original post over at Google+ for more pictures.

If you don't have a Google+ invite yet, drop me a comment and I'll get you one.
