Beneath The Mottled Moonlight

This is the Queensboro Bridge, obviously at night, from a spot just north of the bridge on the Manhattan side. The bright, squat rectangular building on the opposite side is the terminal building for the Roosevelt Island Tram. Beyond the buildings you see on the far shore, which is Roosevelt Island and not Queens, is more of the East River and only then Queens itself.

This is another image that I shot using multiple brackets which turned out to be useful even though this is not processed as an HDR. This is made from the +3 exposure, and would not have been possible from a single shot at neutral exposure.

Repeat Announcement: I’m Taking Requests

As I first mentioned Monday and will repeat all week, I’ve decided to try something a bit interactive. I’m going to start taking requests. If there is a subject, scene or location in New York City or nearby that you would like me to photograph and post on the blog, go to this page and leave your idea in the comments. More details at that page. Please participate and also please spread the word.

    I love the tones if this and those awesome reflections on the water.

  3. Mark, quite honestly I think this is one of the best shots of the bridge I’ve EVER seen! Wow my friend! The sky is just awesome and the colors and tones of the lights in the city really add so very much here. Great capture.

  4. Sweet shot man. It has some kinda batman vibe to it. Maybe its the moon and clouds. Looks awesome.

  5. I love the feeling of space dominated by the moon in the top half of the photo compared to the bright lights and reflections at the bottom.
