Canon General / Re: Spot to take pictures of skyscrapers in NY in the dark
« on: February 16, 2014, 06:29:38 PM »
Across the water on the East River (East side.) There are places to stop towards the south. Gives you a complete view of the city skyline. Take a cab and have him wait for you while you take a couple photos - even better at twilight instead of at full darkness.
No restrictions taking photos on the streets - just be mindful of your equipment and where you are. Stay around other people.
Enjoy B&H, it is an experience!
Don't know where you are staying, but there are many hotels with rooftop venues. Better towards evening because many of them turn to private events at night. One that comes to mind is The Standard Highline on the west side near 20th street - great pano view.

Can't wait to have one of these in my collection"

Thank you! This was taken at the Conowingo Dam in Northern Maryland. If you ever get a chance to go there, I'm sure you'll get your wish!!!

"No doubt the Sigma will be optically superior"

? Nothing in that MTF chart that leads me to feel this would be so.

Here's one from Ft. Lauderdale Beach. A little far away from the barge launching the firworks, but still OK.

There is a new Calumet store in Fort Lauderdale. They bought the old Wolf Camera location on US-1 (Federal Highway) and Sunrise Blvd. Good group of salespeople and good supply of gear + their own brands of lighting, monopod a, etc. You can check them out online - they are out of Chicago. The Ft Lauderdale store is Bout 30-45 mins out of downtown Miami.
