Well, you captured Flatiron from the south, so east is on the right...

Anyway, I love your set of pictures! Keep them coming mate.

Yeah but the photo was edited to give it that effect, I altered the contrast, though it was sunset time. I had actually reached Manhattan at 12 noon so capturing sunrise would be impossible.

Thank you Jane, make sure to watch it in 1080P and enjoy.



PS the blurriness in the video when zoomed in is caused by the "stabilizing effect" from YouTube, I decided to "stabilize" the video to reduce shakiness but it seems it caused blurriness in the video at the parts where I zoomed in.

The pictures from Times Square by you are simply stunning. The Effects also great and fitting. The Atmosphere in this pictures are so great... I would say they count to the best Times Square Pictures I ever saw.

Thanks a lot! I'm glad you like them.


I also have video from there, I will have to do some post-production and hopefully get the video online soon.

Thanks to everyone who likes the photos, but the real credit goes to the great city of NY.
