New York City Skyline
I don’t remember what lens I shot this with from Jersey; but it is super sharp. Take my word for it.

The thing here is, all I remember was that I was obviously on a tripod with a prime long longish lens and I think a light orange filter.  I thought the parallel streaks in the sky, thinking maybe something was wrong with the film scanner.  But it was in the 35mm negative as well.

Yes, I left the white bleed at the top.  I’m just not into burning in that stuff right now.  It helps frame the center of the image.  And I do confess to lightening up the river for the same reason.  Oh, and the original was over-exposed by a stop or so; and I darkened the whole thing, maybe too much? And upped the contrast on the center rectangle in the image.

I've been photographing New York, mostly in black and white, for the last 35 years. In other words, I began in the age of Tri-x and D-76 and eventually moved into the world of pigment ink. Enjoy your stay - Dave
