I haven't done any editing on these photos and my tripod is very weak... I got it for $20 =X (I have no money!! I'm only a student!!) With that said... NYC taken from Brooklyn. I took it today thinking the weather was nice and all but it was kind of foggy. Since I'm a beginner, I used a Nikon D200 with an 18-105mm lens. It came out a bit grainy and I was hoping for a bluer sky. Oh yeah, I couldn't get close to the shore bc the park closed at 4:30pm... I had to stand outside the fence and stick my lens through the gap. NYC taken from Staten Island. This was taken about a week ago and the weather was horrible. It was extremely windy and I found it really hard focus. I would say Staten Island is a bit too far from the city. and... just for fun this was also taken in Staten Island.
