I was in Hoboken, NJ this past Friday night and took this shot Midtown Manhattan. It was beautiful, clear night and this vantage point from Hoboken really captures the dramatic cityscape of Midtown. The illuminated spire of the Empire State Building can be seen center and cluster of skyscrapers to the left of center are buildings of the futuristic Hudson Yards.
I shot these two pictures with my iPhone SE on Sunday, July 22, 2018, while walking over the Fahy Bridge in Bethlehem, PA. The bridge crosses the Lehigh River and connects Historic Bethlehem with South Bethlehem.
In the distance you can the old Bethlehem Steel plant on the right side of the river.
I modified both photos with the HDR Blue Sky filter on the Tonality App.
I took this picture of Statue of Liberty this past Wednesday (05/02/18) from the top of Outlook Hill on Governors Island, in New York City. It was about 4:45 pm when I took the picture, approximately 15 minutes before that portion of the Island closed for the day. It was a sunny, but very windy day, with some clouds. It was an almost surreal sight to see the Sun Rays beaming down of the Statue of Liberty at the moment that I took this picture with my iPhone SE.
I took this shot a couple of weeks ago during a walk across the Fahy Bridge in Bethlehem, PA. The bridge spans the Lehigh River and connects South Bethlehem to Bethhem’s Historic District. I used the Tonality app to give enhance the colors slightly with the Hint of Color filter. The view is looking north, from the south end of the bridge. The bridge was built in 1972 and was totally reconstructed in 2016 and 2017, including new railings for the pedestrian walkway.
Here are my favorite photos from 2017. I initially selected just ten photos a couple of weeks ago that I was going present as my favorites of last year, but after multiple reviews of my 2017 photos I wasn’t totally sure I wanted to narrow down my number of favorites to ten. I ended up with sixteen after my final review.
I’ll start with my Pennsylvania Photos
My remaining favorites were taken in New York City and Montclair, NJ.
