HOW I WAS ABLE TO CAPTURE NYC IN ALL IT'S BEAUTY

The moment of meshing came for my love of digital photography, and a profession as a limo driver. Performing this position,have taken me many, many, places, in addition to New York City, but nowhere as pretty, All photos have been taken by me, and are copyright © Eric Heifetz . For the most part, my pictures are not straight from the disc to the hub. Being somewhat proficient in Photoshop, I make any necessary repairs to the photo. NEVER will I add something nor change a picture, BUT, I might remove a wayward high tension wire to help the picture Sometimes I brighten colors and increase saturation, or sharpen it a much as practical . All for a nicer ( in my opinion ) photo. While some photos may be recognizable to you, others wil be non-discrete areas that caught my eye, and I fired the camera, A number of pictures were actually taken while driving, though never with passengers in my car. Others were taken while waiting for a customer. I usually could not be in a desirable spot, so I had to make the best of where I was. Stop by periodically to catch up on newly uploaded photos.

Love your photos. My hometown looks real good through your eyes. Especially like the ones that are looking upwards or through the tunnel of buildings. You've really got talent.

Thanks for sending these,

Michele
