Photo: Statue of Liberty

Sweet Lady Liberty

: New York City, New York, USA
Year: 2008
Camera: Canon 40D, 70-200mm f/4-5.6 lens
Settings: ISO 100, f/5.6, 1/250 speed, 200mm
Details: This shot was taken in the morning while on the ferry to Liberty Island during my trip to NYC (awesome city!). I was playing with my new 70-200mm lens with this shot. With the boat moving about, I use my monopod to help steady my camera. Monopods are great as they are light weight, fold up nicely, and sometimes allowed where tripods are not. In this case, if I didn't have a monopod I would have had a blurry shot, even with the Image Stabilizer on the lens.
Processing: some minor HDR processing was done to make the colours pop out a bit more.
