Thanks for the compliment. Probably used a circular polarizer for this shot and kicked up the contrast a bit in Photoshop.
kaybee08 - fantastic feeling in this photo... its frame worthy :)
Thanks Michael. I was in luck for the helicopters...
richard... i realize this reply is 4 years later... but would love to see some of your converted slides ! I'd recommend buying a film scanner and have a good time digitizing your slides yourself. Post up here for flickr or something. (If you're not printing on paper i'd suggest 1500 x 1000 pixels would be large enough for details to be seen, but 4800x3200 is what i usually post. extreme details for those who want to really click into the pic.)
awesome information.... i live in astoria and wanted to go, but looked like only a small part of the lake was accessible, so i we've not bothered to take the drive. Definitely will be doing so with your above advice -- thanks a million :)
RELYEA1 - thanks for the touch back :) that kayaking idea sounds like one i should take your advice on ... now if i could only convince my dearest to do so as well ...:) Thanks again for you awesome photos :)
This is pretty easy to get to from the northern Palisades Parking Area. What is more interesting (and difficult) is the Italian Garden-Giant Stairs Loop Hike. Great views. Regards, Chris
eye catching contrasts - both in content and dynamic range. excellent composition!
