Great photo Adam!

Thank you Maxine if you ever get the chance to see NYC, make some sort of plans to hop over to NJ and see the city from this perspective. During the day Liberty State Park / Statue of Liberty & Ellis island, towards the evening and night the views from Hoboken, Weehawken and the Palisades Cliffs is just amazing..

If I get back to NYC, I'll be sure and go thru your photos to get some of the best places to take pics. Thanks Maxine

No problem Maxine, same here someday I would like to come on out to the Mid West again I would be able to use locations of your photos as well for reference points for great places to see...

Great shot Adam - how long was the exposure? Just joined your North American Railroader group, mostly added Mexican and Canadian trains and bridges! db

Thank you David, if I used my DSLR Xti I would be able to tell you better, but this was taken with my point and shoot Canon SX230 on automatic mode but with the flash disabled. I know the camera took about three to four seconds to expose this shot. During normal lighting "daytime" in automatic mode the exposure takes about half a second to one whole second depending on the amount of light...

Thank you again for joining the group, I can't believe how big its gotten, I am glad...
