Photographer's Note

This was snapped on just a beautiful day from the stern deck of a tugboat while we were anchored with an empty barge at Bayridge Anchorage waiting for orders. I've marked where we were anchored on the map. The anchorage here is mostly used for tugboats and barges and is controlled by the coast guard who lets the captain know where to drop the anchor. There is another anchorage for tugs and barges along the west side of Manhattan just south of the George Washington Bridge.

All of the trees in the shot are actually on Governors Island which is lying directly in between my POV and Manhattan. Again, you can see this on the map. Also, even though the water is fairly dark blue, it is not that windy. The little waves and darkness of the water here is due to the strong current working against the slight breeze at the time.

What I like most about this shot are the two distinctly different types of clouds in the sky, and how the building just look so small by comparison to the clouds. Then again, notice the buildings far off to the right on the horizon. Those are still in New York City so it also gives an idea of just how large the city is.

Photoshopped:
Increased the magentas in the reds.
Increased the blacks and cyans in the cyans and blues.
Increased Shadow/Highlight, but only by 1% each.
Increased saturation slightly.
I THINK I added a very slight warming filter (81), but can't remember since I did this while very tired and late at night.
