    HDR works very well here; not the typical postcard shot

Frankly, I hadn't thought of HDR at night but obviously it works - and very well too judging by your work. Congratulations on scoring gold with this splendid cityscape Robert.

Robert, what a fine photo.
The long tele-perspective is really great (And surprising to me. I have never seen the Lady of Liberty so 'close' to Manhattan).
Colour, exposure and HDR-process are all perfectly handled. Congratulations!
A question: Is this a natural 500mm perspective, or cropped further?
Regards Peder

Thank you all for your comments and for looking. And Peder, this is the whole frame, in camera composition...no further cropping. The 500 does really compress the landmarks. Taken from the Port Jersey Pier in Jersey City.
