Here's a few from this weekend, before the rain came in on Sunday.

I was surprised to see a lot stars in this shot (at least when you view it fullscreen).

I was able to get a few shots off here before getting kicked out. Luckily the guy was cool about it and asked me to leave kindly.

^^^awesome! How did you do that to the sky? That horizontal smear look.

Yep it was a 30 second exposure. I watched to see which way the clouds were blowing and then tried to shoot from an angle that would make the clouds look like they were following the angles of the building.

Thank you! It was a very cool spot, but the security there is pretty tight. I was there for literally 30 seconds before a guard walked up and asked me to leave.

Well worth it though!

Thanks!

Just quick quesion about the overhead of the train. Great graphic but is there detail in the original file on the top of the train. I think a little more, if it is there, would help make the image even better.

the location for the "the city is yours" is amazing, cool shot. I too was kicked out of there sometime back, but I had about 10 minutes of shooting before I was kicked out. The guard was cool and let me finish taking a few shots before he made me leave. Here are my shots from there

Scary how reminiscent this shot is of 9/11. Cool shot, though.
