While visiting New York City, I decide to head over to Brooklyn and catch the sunset. Brooklyn is one of those magical places that seems to encompass everything for city scape photography! This is the first photo I snapped after a short subway trip from Manhattan. Once on the bridge, I cautiously set up my tripod with the looming thought of accidentally “taking out” a bicycler or pedestrian! Ever seen a Tour de France bicycle pile up? Well, setting up your tripod “willy nilly” on a crowded bridge is a recipe for disaster! (Cue: Benny Hill Theme). Despite the bicyclists whizzing past, I did managed to capture the image below with no pile up! While post processing this image, I drew inspiration from the fella on the right… he kinda looks like a gunslinger heading off into the sunset! Hence the name of this photo “Sundown on the Brooklyn Bridge.”

This is a shot that I took of the New York City Skyline. The photo was taken from across the Hudson River in Brooklyn. This night was one of my favorite memories from our trip. More info --> http://presetpro.com/creative-edit-goodnight-new-york-tim-martin
This is a photo of a sunrise over Lake Huron in Northern Canada. While visiting friends for the weekend, I decided to get up early and take a few shots over the water. I thought that the rocky beach and the path leading up to the lake would make a really unique shot. We had a great time exploring the lake the day before. The kayaks that we had used were nicely lined up on the shoreline, which added a nice pop of color to the shot. When you’re up north, kayaking is the only way to explore! The sky was exactly what every photographer hopes for that morning, the perfect balance of wispy clouds, blue sky and sunlight. This shot is a constant reminder to me that it always pays off get up early and capture the sunrise.
