    I"m in New York to cover Photo Plus, and I went to Brooklyn for the standard Manhattan skyline shots. Yes, I know this spot has been photographed a billion times, but I still wanted shots from there. I'll do more in-city shooting over the next few days after I'm done writing and visiting the show.

    A7 II with FE 16-35/4, FE 55/1.8 and FD 85/1.8:

    The first shot posted is the last shot of the night, a 2 minute exposure...I started it with my little remote, then promptly lost my grip on the remote, and it fell into the East River. I had to stop the exposure by turning the camera off. Guess I'll swing by B&H and get another tomorrow.

    Amazed that these girls stayed almost completely still throughout the entire 30 second exposure:

    Who cares if those have been shot a billion times before? Those are all beautiful. How long was the shutter open on that last one?

    There is a reason those places are so popular to shoot.

    Well done
