For a New Yorker a scene like this is probably just another day in the city but I was mesmerized by colors and swirl of activity out of the crack in my hotel room window. Decided to take the Nikon D700 and its very sharp 50mm f/1.4 AF-S lens and take it to the limit at ISO 6400. This is NOT an HDR. It is a single RAW image, taken through ACR, noise reduced in Dfine 2.0 and then given a taste of nik Color Efex 4.0.
Amazing what the state of the art sensors can see. This is Seventh Avenue in midtown Manhattan looking towards Times Square.
After the Sun goes down, the lights come up in the Times Square district. Night time gives this neighborhood a whole new sense of energy and and vibrancy! It's a great place to have some fun, especially if you bring a camera! Never leave home without one!

"It's nice seeing it from the perspective, huh? You can see what you're fighting for."
- John Turturro from 'The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3'
Taken during a winter rain, standing in the middle of 7th Avenue, looking downtown with Central Park not to far behind me.
And than blurred, and blurred some more, and of course saturated a bit, well maybe more than a bit....
Hope every one is doing great!
The most colorful and busy intersection in Manhattan.

Olympus mju II (Stylus Epic) and some fujicolor superia HQ 200 film.
I thought I was going to fry my little camera out in the pouring New York rain but it survived. Originally they were sold as 'weatherproof' so I guess they had some additional bells that meant they could endure a brief rain encounter. It must be 20 years old so I'm impressed!
Instead of getting my pics on a CD I've got myself a Epson V600 scanner and I've scanned the negs. I really like the results, they resemble slide film a little. Enjoying the mild New York winter to date. Set the camera on a ledge here, self timer on, flash off.
Times Square is a major commercial intersection and neighborhood in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue, and stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets.
Another one from the Trek America Archive. I only just bought the DSLR for a month and was figuring how to do long exposure.
Feel free to look at my other travel photographs in my Photostream, and I always appreciate your comments. Thanks.
My wandering walk takes me more or less by chance from near Ground Zero up to the Tiles for America memorial, which remembers the deaths of September 11th.
On this fence at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Greenwich, hand-crafted tiles from all over America and the world hang by the hundreds. Most are by children and tend to be crude, honest, and sometimes heartbreaking. I had never stopped to look at them before, or not since shortly after the disaster. It's been a while since then, of course, but I have a bit of a moment there, reading the distress of a nation.
Our weekly selection of Thursday glee over in the tribal headquarters of the Utata photo group includes the ongoing Utata Thursday Walk, which is an open-ended and unstructured walk through the day, camera in hand. As it happens, open-ended and unstructured are my middle names. It's a terrific way to focus the mind's eye, and since there are no goals, I respond to each one in interesting and unpredictable ways. Or so it seems to me, at least.
I have mostly done my walks on Fridays, when I'm off work. It makes Thursdays a state of mind, which I rather like. This Thursday was my last day of work until fall, and my Friday excursion lacks focus some - which is just the way I like it, sometimes.
See the rest of my Thursday Walk images in the Getting the Hang of Thursdays set.
A mild Sunday. Looks like the weather is finally changing for the warmer!
Under the shadow of the Manhattan's Skyscrapers, Seventh Avenue is overrun with New Yorkers, almost unchanged over the last century. The alley ways and the cracks conceal the city's secrets, keeping its cards close to its chest.

Some of the buildings in the Times Square area use so many bright lights that they bathe the entire street with their glow. I really liked these greenish blue tones shining here on Seventh Avenue!
This is a 3 shot HDR image, done with Photomatix and then run through Photoshop.

I had a bit of fun with this shot. It's a reflection in a puddle outside the Minskoff Theater of the Lion King signage on Seventh Avenue. I flipped it vertically and horizontally so the text is legible.

Times Square tire son nom d'après l'ancien emplacement du siège du New York Times, est un quartier de la ville de New York, situé dans l'arrondissement de Manhattan. Situé sur la 42e rue et Broadway, il comprend les blocs (pâtés d'immeubles) situés entre la Sixième et la Neuvième Avenue d'est en ouest d'une part et les blocs entre les 39e à 52e rue du sud au nord d'autre part. Il constitue la partie ouest du quartier commerçant de Midtown.
Surnommé « Crossroads of the world », Times Square est l'un des endroits les plus célèbres et les plus animés au monde, à l'instar de Shibuya à Tokyo, les Champs-Élysées à Paris ou Piccadilly Circus à Londres : environ 365 000 personnes y passent chaque jour.
Times Square is a major commercial intersection and a neighborhood in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, at the junction of Broadway (now converted into a pedestrian plaza) and Seventh Avenue and stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Times Square – iconified as "The Crossroads of the World", "The Center of the Universe", and the "The Great White Way" – is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway Theater District, one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections, and a major center of the world's entertainment industry. According to Travel + Leisure magazine's October 2011 survey, Times Square is the world's most visited tourist attraction, hosting over 39 million visitors annually. Approximately 330,000 people pass through Times Square daily, many of whom are either tourists or people working in the area.
Formerly Longacre Square, Times Square was renamed in April 1904 after The New York Times moved its headquarters to the newly erected Times Building – now called One Times Square – site of the annual ball drop on New Year's Eve, a tradition which began on December 31, 1907 and continues today, attracting thousands to the Square every New Year's.
The northern triangle of Times Square is technically Duffy Square, dedicated in 1937 to Chaplain Francis P. Duffy of New York City's "Fighting 69th" Infantry Regiment; a memorial to Duffy is located there, along with a statue of George M. Cohan, and the TKTS discount theatre tickets booth. The stepped red roof of the TKTS booth also provides seating for various events. The Duffy Statue and the square were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.
Somewhat oddly, an old white guy was driving it. Another candy colored vehicle passed by and "saluted" but m&m's didn't seem interested in responding with anything but an awkward wave.
