I just recently moved to NYC. I bought myself a tripod for Christmas, and I have been practicing with it almost every night. I took this shot from my apartment window down 6th Avenue.

I reduced noise and added a gradient map adjustment layer in overlay mode.

Cityscapes can be hard to make interesting as they are done so often..but this one is very fresh and vibrant.
Would make a great poster.

Nice work.
