    I like it as well, you've taken more time than I can normally afford to taking photos when I am abroad.

    How was NYC?

    How was NYC?


    Manhattan was fantastic.
    There was a huge gathering of people at Radio City Hall. A massive Christmas tree and hundreds of people ice skating on an out door ice rink.
    and about another 60 000 people hanging around.
    Taking photo's there was very difficult as there were too many people in the way.
    I was still trying to get used to the new camera, so I did not have much success.
    The Nikon 50mm prime lens was easy to use in the lighting, but it was not wide enough.
    I took a lot of other pics with the Nikon 28-300mm but it is a crappy lens to use with a lot of busseling people in limited light.

    My family stayed a total of seven (7) nights in Manhattan.
    One night before Christmas, then we came back for six (6) nights over new year.
    We stayed in Times Square. The festive / New Year celebrations are very different to Australia.
    The Christmas trees are real, not plastic and they are everywhere. It reminded me of those American Christmas movies you used to see as a kid.
    Seeing one million people outside my hotel to see the ball drop in times square was incredible. You would not think so many people would gather in one spot up to 16 hours to get a good position when the days maximum temperature was minus 3 degrees.
    New York was great, but a very fast City, I even found myself rushing.
    Central Park in winter is awesome, you could spend the whole day there taking photo's
    We did a lot of touristy things, went to American Museum of Natural History.
    Statue of Liberty, the Empire State building, The World Trade Centre Memorial, Brooklyn, Hudson Harbour and the Hudson and East river cruise. Caught a subway Ate a Pastrami on Rye at the Dinner where they filmed Harry met Sally.
    I wish I had more time there.
