Just wanted to do a quick post. I was in NJ yesterday and took this picture right before a rain storm. Let me know what you guys think!

    Saw your post on the Nikon LinkedIn site, so checked out your photo – this is amazing, crisp and beautiful lighting. Did you use any special editing effects? Amazing skyline shot, The posts or whatever they are called, add great interest, nice angle as well. A very striking shot overall.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you for visiting. It’s actually a HDR shot. I took a total of five (5) shots,-2,-1,0,+1, and +2 and then combined them using Nik HDRefex Pro and cleaned it up a bit using Photoshop Elements. The “Posts” are actually old remains of a dock/Pier, behind me (where I was taking the picture) were apartment complex with a view of the New York City. Thanks again and let me know if you have any other questions.
