Stunning! This person could very well have a new job! It looks like a film set!

I know it was someone from these boards, because I saved the picture as my background. It's a fantastic picture of what is currently my favorite street in the world.

He started an off topic thread about 2 weeks ago and shared some pictures he had just taken. I think he had some time to kill and walked the city and took pictures. They are quite stunning. And I have to admit, I too used 2 as the background on my home computer. Makes me feel like I am in the city!

It is truly amazing. I pinched it weeks ago and had thought about having it professionally printed and framed.

It's BEAUTIFUL

cubanpab!!! these pictures are, quite possibly, the most amazing pictures I've ever seen taken in New York. bravo, sir.


and just so you know, it's not Hailey Banks in Legally Blonde. It's Bailey Hanks re: Who Took This Great Picture?
The only thing to be afraid of, really, is that it won't be.

Those pictures are mindblowingly beautiful. Just amazing.

I especially like the ones from the rocks on the Brooklyn Bridge. Those are truly stunning.

DAMN! Those photos are beautiful!!! You people aren't joking!

Cuban- what setting do you use on your camera? Do you photoshop the pictures to enhance color?

Holly - thanks. I shoot all my photos in manual mode. I manually set the aperture, shutter speed, ISO, everything... gives me the creative control i like. and lots of patience and waiting for the right time to take the shot.

i use photoshop to add contrast which helpts with the colors, and on ocassion i'll add some filter, but thats about it. i'm really clueless when it comes to photoshop, its hard for me to use it.

i wish i knew how! photoshop looks awesome and i know people who use it to truly take their photos to a whole new level.

I bookmarked your page =P My cousin loves St. Marks and was the one who brought me there for the first time so I'm sure she'll love the pictures. And all of the pictures in general are taken so beautifully.
