    Now that's some skyline Jason ! Very well done. NYC has such a long extended skyline that you tend to lose the scale of the buildings when it's compressed into an image that will fit on a monitor. I imagine it would look pretty impressive on a very large canvas.

    PS This has to be viewed in Lightbox for best effect.

    That, I think, is very good and in terms of the use of light is, I think, a better image than the image of almost the same scene posted in the November competition.

    I think, overall, this image looks a bit softer/more subtle than the November one. But that is not, in my opinion, any problem. Indeed, I prefer this one. It's not so harsh and there is a better balance of tone, in my opinion.

    Yes I had a look at that November image and I also think this one is considerably better. Better light and exposure and a better crop/aspect ratio.

    Thanks everyone. I really wanted to improve the shot from again from the first and second time i shot from this location. This time it was with a different camera and lens but also different settings and processing were done. I think in the d600 shot i used my 50mm 1.4. Also my d600 had the sensor dust problem that is common among early models. When i contacted nikon they basically said its my problem so i sold it. Im still very unhappy about the situation but at least it gave me an excuse to go buy a d800. I was so disgusted with nikon's response I almost converted to canon but i couldnt stand the though of taking that much of a loss on all the equipment I invested in.

    Jason, great images and much improvement from November well done. i visited NYC a couple of years ago and spent a fab 10 days there, would love to go back, but the wife says im not allowed near B&H!

    i have much the same opinion of Nikon at the moment and if i were not so heavily invested in them i would have gone over to canon. Hopefully they will start to listen!

    I live about fifteen minutes from b&h it is so easy to spend your life savings there. Every time i go in i see something that i "need". anyway I sold my d600 to them and they didnt seem to notice the dust. I really hope that nikon does make good on the problem for the d600 owners.
