Image taken from Astoria, Queens, from a lagoon on the Harlem river, looking towards Manhatten and the famed Hells Gate. Taken with my new Sony Alpha 550 using a 24-105mm AF D Zoom Lens, tripod and cable release. The camera was wet f=in the HDR mode which takes two exposures, one highlight and one shadow exposure, then sandwiches them together for a high dynamic range.

Exif: F Number: 22, Exposure Bias Value: -0.30, ExposureTime: 40/10 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 1600, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 26.00 mm, Model: DSLR-A550
