The Circle Line Cruise was one of my best photo ops.  As a lifelong New Yorker – of course I had never been on the Circle Line Cruise.  But one day – it just seemed like the thing to do.  I took a long zoom lens (70mm – 300mm) that had Image Stabilization and that was a great combination.  Obviously the boat is moving.  If you are going to use a long lens you’ll need to shoot at a fast speed like 1600 ASA and let’s face it, you need to know what you’re doing.  But it is possible, if you are using a fast shutter speed, to get excellent views of Manhattan, the Bridges, and the Statue of Liberty.
