When I was in NY I was thinking about a helicopter round trip. Is it the $150 worth? How long does it take and where do they fly around? I really envy you for this shot!
Thank you AxHo, we went with Liberty Helicopters and took the "Big Apple" tour, which was $120. There are two take-off sites: the Hudson River or the East River. We flew down the Hudson River, passed Central Park, Midtown, the financial district and then around Liberty Island. It was amazing, however because we flew in the morning, the sun was on the other side of the skyline and a lot of my photos were in shadow :-( So I would definitely plan which river you want to depart from AND at which time of day the sunlight will be best with regards to the skyline.
Sorry to hear. I wondered why there are not any more aerial photographs. That's really a pity!
I've uploaded a photo from the tour to show you the difference in light. There was so much shadow in it I changed it to a B&W photo for the net (the grain is from my scanner.) The view is still amazing, but it would definitely have been better in the afternoon or evening.
I noticed the difference in light but have to say that it was the right decision to change the photo to b/w. As you wrote it is still a amazing view and you know how it looked like in reality. This is a experience nobody can take you off (hope you know what i mean :-)).
Thanks AxHo, I know what you mean :-)
Thank you so much for all your kind comments Peter Curry! :-)
