Staten Island Ferry Terminal, Manhattan

5DMKII + 16-35mm, 3 exposures, f/5.6, ISO 100, handheld.

It was a smokin’ hot Sunday afternoon in NYC when I shot this. I crouched down and waited for the crowds to pass before I snapped this shot. There are limitless locations to shoot in NYC. As a little summer project, I’m gradually working my way around the city capturing the best of NYC.

What are your end of summer photography projects?

    I love these HDR photos you’ve been posting lately, but I have a question.

    How do you get the three exposures so quickly? Whenever I try to do HDR if there is any motion in the photo I have to wait for it to pass out of the frame before I even start. Is this just a feature of the 5DMkII or is there a method that someone with any DSLR can use?

    I wish you’d go back to basics and stop the HDR madness. :-(
