Man! I love the mood you created in you most recent series of pictures - - Graduated ND filter or software magic?

Adam Elmquist on January 21, 2013

Thank you John I would have to say software Magic.. But... New point and shoot Canon SX260HS coupled with HDR shooting method. I used Photomatix Essentials also a bit of Aperture tools "Border FX plugin" too..

Yo! I've got a challenge for you.... can you find the remains of the old dock and ammunition warehouses that used to be just south of where you took this photo? German saboteurs blew it all up just prior to our entering WWI. I believe it was an island back then but has since been filled in and joined the mainland.

Okay, here are some photos of the site.. 68825824 best one, 68825805, 68825769.. also found this web site, about the Black Tom Explosion. I do have more photos of the area but they are private to my family "fishing photos".. This area they do allow fishing and crabbing here it has gotten cleaned up in the NY Harbor "Hudson River"...
