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. #10134899

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?

Thank you all for your comments and for looking. And Peder, this is the whole frame, in camera further cropping. The 500 does really compress the landmarks. Taken from the Port Jersey Pier in Jersey City. #10322631
