I guess its time to get back to the TE Grind of uploading new photos :)
Christmas Day has passed, and i Hope everyone had a memorable day with Family :)
I'm hoping to upload some winter scenes from Vancouver, but its actually unusual for us to get snow, unless you're up in the mountains. In the city areas, called the Lower Mainland, snow just doesn't accumulate, the temperatures are too mild - therefore we get rain most days in our winters. So we'll wait and see...
In the mean time, i will take us back to New York City. This photo was taken along the long walk across the Manhattan Bridge - a must for anyone!
The views of Downtown NYC are amazing! It was raining just 20 minutes before I took this shot, a total surprise that the sun came out. It was calling for rain and clouds all day, but i guess the weather man isn't correct every day!
I loved this walk, we spent at least 2 -3 hours enjoying the view and taking tons of photos. The scene is cut short along the bottom because all you'd see are the steel beams of the bridge, and i thought it would ruin the shot.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for looking

Hi Craig, my neighbour,
In Poland we celebrate Christmas Eve and then two days of Christmas. So it hasn't passed yet.
Beautiful panorama of NYC, with your favorite Gehry building. Excellent sharpness and nice sky with delicate clouds.
have a nice day

Un beau ciel pour couronner ces immeubles de NY bien mis en image dans ce format panoramique.
Joyeuses fêtes de fin d'année.

Hi Craig, beautiful panoramic cutting, i like the graphic effect created by skyscrapers, the sky is beautiful, do you used the polarizer? I really like the image, enjoy your holiday, Valter

Hi Craig, Excellent NY skyline. nice sharp and detailed. the sky adding a great perspective. I recently shot the London skyline and was fascinated at the low level of the buildings. It has never really been a high skyline.. however the recent advent of "The shar" it is changing that to a small extent. Rich

Outstanding panoramic photo! Impressive cityscape, but this picture is not full without the towers of WTC, unfortunatelly.
Anyway, this is good photowork, an interesting note.
Happy New Year! best wishes in 2012.
I don't remember the name of that Czech restaurant, but I will write to you adress of this building some later.
I remember it.
Best regards from Ural,

New York on a very extraordinarily way, truly the skyline with the skycrapers as subject.
Excellent depth and perspective image.
Sharpness and clarity are attractive.
A happy & Healthy 2012

Même sans les jumelles, le skyline de New York demeure encore un des plus beau du monde, même si certaines villes chinoises commencent à tenter de lui ravir la place. Le ciel ici est magnifique.

Gorgeous shot! I like the tiny bit of cable that is visible on the bottom of the frame. The sky certainly turned beautiful after the rain, and having the new Gehry building included is great. I never get tired of looking at these views. :-)
paololg (31448) 2011-12-26 14:59
Ciao dear Craig,
after the rain, the sky is always beautiful, and this pleasant image shows it. The quality of this photo, especially the sharpness, is simply amazing, really seems to be near to you in the moment of the shot. Excellent work, dear friend, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice week and a good end of 2011!

Hello Craig ,
the kind of sky that is really a great bonus to present this panorama of the high buidings of New York .
ChrisJ (116676) 2011-12-28 1:21
A nice wide angled, panoramic shot of NYC. I like the inclusion of part of the suspension bridge at the bottom to frame the scene and the triangular cable at right. Love the contorted swirling clouds in the blue sky. Tfs!
delpeoples (59186) 2011-12-28 19:50
What amazing clouds, they're really the first thing that strikes you about this photo. And then of course your subject matter. The NY skyline - at least for me -is always a little haunted since 2001 and I always view it with sadness. I hope one day soon I can view it with hope. Beautiful colours, excellent sharpness and great cropping. Thanks for sharing and here's to health, happiness and lots of travel in 2012 for you and T.
patdeph (35748) 2011-12-29 6:30
this a fantastic picture,the sharpness and the effect of relief are incredible.That give the sensation to be in front of a model and not in front of a picture.
The sky is magnificent,and I love the soft tones.
JFS (32459) 2011-12-29 6:57
I'm back and find this wonderful shot of yours! Your NYC skyline is impressive, so nitid! I like the chrome colors and the amazing sky. Good work my friend!

le ciel est magnifique et bien que paisible, il ne manue pas de caractère et attire directement le regard.
Une ville qui se reconnait au premier regard.
Mes compliments et meilleurs voeux pour 2012.
LOOOK13 (19046) 2011-12-29 13:33
Wonderful view of N Y...
yquem46 (38752) 2011-12-29 13:38
So classic yet still so impressive
How do I regret that I was in NY long before the age of digital photography, but maybe I'll have another chance
have a nice day, my best wishes for 2012
josepmarin (58359) 2011-12-30 5:46
a magnificent capture of the skyline of my dear Manhattan, from the Brooklyn Bridge, which evokes me a few beautiful recollections, though I see a new skyscraper and the construction of the future Freedom Tower in the Ground Zero, which changes a bit this known sight.
The sky with the brushstrokes of white clouds has a great aesthetic role in your composition, and adds a great beauty to the ensemble.
An excellent work, my friend.
I wish to you and your family a very happy New Year!
abmdsudi (56344) 2011-12-30 21:59
It's a lovely pano which gave fantastic view of the NYC skyline. The blue skyscape looks really good with more detail from the clouds. Well featured highlights with some nice colors and thanks to your attention to detail. The light quality and exposure combination is amazing depicting a fine effect and contrast shaded by equally impressive blue sky. Harmoniously blended shot. Fine photo work, Congrats
Best Wishes & have a brilliant day tommorow
