Gates Reflection

Uploaded: March 10, 2005


February 20, 2005, late afternoon; the Gates near the northern end of Central Park. Snow clouds had begun gathering so the sun was hidden. Still, the saffron shows brightly. Canon 28-90mm zoom lens; f/S 4.5; ISO 100; shutter speed 1/60; aperture 4.34.

Thanks, Mary! I took about 250 shots of the Gates, kept and edited about 130 of them. However, I only plan to post the three that are already there. Thanks for noticing! Keep shooting! Jay

This is really nice! I was tethered to my family that wanted to do sooo much while we were there that I barely got 20 shots of the gates and never went more than 100 yards into the park. I did get 1 or 2 good shots so I have little regret but do wish I could have spent a few hours walking through the park.

Mary, thanks for much for the kind words. it means a lot coming from someone with YOUR talent! You mention that Graham has his own gallery, too? Where could I find it--I'd like to see how he progresses as time goes by. Keep shooting! Jay
