    I like the first one. I would use the burn tool a little on the sky.

    Appreciate it. Though there are a lot of shots of the city, I think in way it will always be a timeless capture. And I also wasn't too sure about the Statue of Liberty picture, but I liked how it stood out against the overcast sky that day. I think there could be better ways to crop it. I'll have to look into it.

    Sometimes shooting in NYC is not easy, especially for a beginner (me).

    The haze and low lying smog really make it difficult. Add to that the reflections off other building surfaces and the bright natural light, even on some overcast days, and the pictures do not always come out.

    I am sure there is a method when these conditions exist, I have yet to conquer them though.

    ...You mean dodge? :( Or am I wrong?

    They're a little typical of NYC photos, just really good quality. Although I really do like the second picture's comp and cropping. Boats get a lil in the way but I understand there was little to do about it. The green of the trees could use some desaturation as the colour also takes away your focus from the main subject, which is also of the green family, a lil bit.

    Good work.

    Burn to make the sky a little grayer.

    Nice shots. I think I would like #1 better if there was a bit more contrast....

    Not bad. The white-out sky is a bit much.
