My first thread here at ssc. So let's hope everything works out well :)

Being obsessed by The City of New York and America for many years, my dream finally became reality. In May 2004, we went to New York City for the first time! Arriving at Newark airport, I sat foot on American soil for the first time. We took the bus to port authority. During our bustrip to manhattan, which seemed to take forever, I had to record everything on camcorder, from the big American rides to the broad freeways. I just couldn't believe we were in the USA. Finally we arived at port authority. When we went out of PA, i was like :eek2: woooaw! Immediately i turned on the camcorder. Everything, just everything had to be on tape. After our 6 day trip to New York City, we managed to record 4 hours on tape and took about 170 photos (which is reasonable).

A friend of mine has got the tapes from our NYC trip, and we haven't had much time since to edit our film, but we will at one time :). When we're finished editting our footage, we'll share them with you guys. But I'm not here to tell you only that, I wanted to share our photo's of NYC with you. So here they're

Yo, Phantom what kind of camera do you own and how many mega pixels is it? :cheers:

:) Got a Canon Digital Rebel (also known as the EOS 300D in Europe) , 6.3 MP (3072*2048 effective pixels). Bought it at J&R in NYC, taking some advantage of the dollar-euro currency :) I've to say that most photo's are edited with Photoshop to get better contrast and more vivid colors.
