Cartier in New York during the Holidays

A Beautiful Newsletter Going Out Today! (Don’t tell the Aussies)

Our free newsletter goes out live today! There is mention of a secret trip to New Zealand… but shh… don’t tell those Aussies because they get all upset about this talk. I have no desire to earn their ire, even though they are generally too laid back to do anything about it.

Isn’t it the prettiest newsletter in the world? All I ask is that you share it with your friends, family, and other people that you think like beautiful things.

My Favorite Software products of the Year

Two great tools out there for you: See my Nik Review and my Topaz Adjust Review.

And, of course, I am sure most of you have already seen my Photomatix Review. That thing is awesome and I use it all the time! In fact, just the other night during the SmugMug event, I gave people a quick 15-minute demo.

Daily Photo – Cartier in New York during the Holidays

I shot this a few days ago when I was in New York City. It was a cold and rainy night, so shooting with this bulbous 14-24 mm lens is an exercise in frustration! If you aim it just slightly in the air, it gets soaked in about 2 seconds! So, I set the aperture to 2.8 so the 5 exposures would be as fast as Nikonably possible.

Fifth Avenue in New York is amazing at Christmas. It’s everything you imagine. I’ve done my best to capture the spirit of it here, and I have a lot more shots in the pipeline… stay tuned!

Cartier in New York during the Holidays

  • Beautiful shot!

    I do agree: New York City around Christmas is pretty awesome.

    Looking forward to that newsletter! 🙂

  • Yeah shooting in bad weather isn’t the most fun thing to do, i know all about that… good capture though, no movement in the flags is also a bonus to a good looking photo.

  • Great picture – I like the look of the wet sidewalk.

  • Darn you Trey Ratcliff (shakes fist). I just processed a Cartier Building shot yesterday to post tomorrow. Oh well, it’s gonna go up anyway.

  • The wet sidewalk adds to this photo. Nice shot.

  • Hehe thanks all…

    Mark – no worries – plenty of sweet Cartier to go around! 🙂

    Nothing like a good rain to make photo’s sing! Quite complaining, if you had waited you’d be up to your neck in snow!

    I purchased the Topaz suite on your recommendation, and I use it ALL THE TIME. Thanks. Best filter I’ve ever seen and very affordable.

    Nice shot, btw. Great color. You sure can see the light pollution in the sky! Happy holidays, Trey, to you and the family.

  • Thanks!

  • The reflections on the wet floor makes it totally worth to shoot in the rain. Superb image.

  • Have to admit I love sheen on concrete on HDR photographs. It just adds so much to whole picture. Great job again Trey
