Thanks. It was shot raw PEF and processed using the included software. mostly just white balance. No noise reduction. shot ISO 100, No Photoshop. You can see the full size in my photostream on Flickr

Super, super shot. A nice sized print of this would be an absolutely beautiful adornment for anyone's wall. I like this one a LOT.

Excellent

I'm pretty happy with the results. This was taken with the 18-55mm that came with the camera.
PS- This is the George Washington Bridge and Henry Hudson Parkway in New York City.
Wonderful composition, very exciting!

Bravo!
Ben

Yes indeed ~ That kit lens seems to be one nice piece of glass, and makes me wish that I had been able to get it with my K10D. Then again, though, it's like many have said: The lens does play a sizable role, in the scheme of these things - but it is really the photographer who brings the meat to the plate .

Sharpshoota did one heck-uv-a job with that shot, and I just can't say enough about how much I like it. Seeing shots like this, just gives me more to know about what capabilities are in my hands - with this K10D.

My next question on the forum was going to be how are long exposures with the K10D. Your photo answers that question and it looks like it does a great job. I was a bit worried about how the current group of cameras using the Sony 10mp sensor would do long exposures because I kept heearing about noise this and noise that. This just makes me look forward to getting my K10D. Thanks for the pic.

PS> As you know I like lightning photos so that weather sealing along woth good long exposure quality is what I'm looking for.

Great photo! I was just wondering compositionally speaking...would it have been better to just have the bridge? The blue glow is awe inspiring but I find the bright traffic just underneath a bit distracting. any thoughts?

umm, no. I find it to be good the way it is. In fact , I feel the road invites you. Just my opinion.

You know, they say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder - and I don't mean to shoot down FotoPete's suggestion (because that is how he sees it). But this photo (to me) works so perfect just the way that it is. I, myself, find nothing whatsoever distracting about what was captured within it. There is just one thing, however, that I wish were different about it: and that is that "I" had been the photographer behind this superb piece of work .
