My World Tuesday







You're looking at the Throggs Neck Bridge and the Manhattan skyline from Sands Point, Long Island.

To be honest I probably shouldn't try to take this sort of a picture with my little point-and-shoot digital camera. The subject matter is really too far away...

I tweaked the color and contrast and sharpened the shots a little.

Beautiful shots Mary. I love the brilliant blue of the water and the skyline is lovely.

Don't beat yourself up Teach, these are beautiful shots. And I do this most of the time with my little point and shoot, targeting SF skyline from Berkeley across the bay and yours are way better than my shots.

Have a great week.

I think your point and shoot created a lovely effect! It works for me!

That famous Manhattan skyline seems lonely without the Twin Towers...

Martha Z said...

That was my thought, too. The absent towers make their own statement.

They're great shots, Mary. And there is no other skyline like New York -- even with the towers missing. Strange, but that tug on my heart happens every time I see a picture of the NY skyline. And as I read the others comments I realized that I'm not alone. Have a great week. All I have is a point and shoot, but I won't let it stop me from taking pictures and I know you won't either!

I would be tempted to take a shot with a point and shoot, if that was all I had at the moment, too!
