    Which park, Savage? It's a really nice shot! Great combo of the tree, clouds and sky.

    It was taken at Carl Schurz on the east side.

    That is a very cool shot.

    Really beautiful. What lens were you using and where were you standing?

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone! It's very much appreciated.

    Kestra, I was standing in the middle of W33rd Street, halfway between 6th & 7th Aves (I ducked out into the street in between traffic signals). I was using my Canon 70D and a 70-300mm Canon lens - though I was only using about half of its zoom capability.

    Interestingly enough, the moon wasn't the only company the Empire State Building had on Sunday (also taken on W33rd, but between 5th and 6th Aves, and before the moon had risen above the skyline):

    ^ Have you taken photography courses or was it "just" a lot of practice to get amazing pictures like that?

    I am asking because right now the way I learn is by reading books. I was thinking about taking a course, but it's too expensive for me at the moment. Luckily the father of a friend of mine is a photographer and he is willing to teach me a few things. So, I am interested in the kind of experiences other people had with photography courses.

    My parents are visiting from North Carolina, my dad is trying to get my daughter Kira to smile for a picture and she is very weary.

    I've worn the teenage and adult versions of that expression in more than a few photos over the years. But they were all worth it in retrospect. :)

    I told my wife to expect that expression a lot when she is a teenager but with the added bonus of sarcasm thrown in.
