The skyline of New York City is ever-changing and is host to some of the largest skyscrapers in the world. A particularly amazing view and perspective of this skyline is available from the shores of the New Jersey side of the Hudson River, from the Hudson River itself taking a ferry to Ellis Island or even from the Statue of Liberty. Among some of the standout skyscrapers are the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building, two excellent specimens of Art Deco architecture. Manhattan, the centerpiece and island borough of New York City, shows the ingenuity of hundreds of years of American architecture, and from the Hudson, the view is unmatched.

Try black-and-white
With the Monochrome Picture Style setting on the EOS 5D, you can shoot black-and-white images in-camera. The advantage of doing this rather than converting color images later in the computer is that you can check them on the LCD monitor in black-and-white, and apply popular filters (yellow, orange, red or green) and image tones (sepia, blue, purple or green) via the Picture Styles menu. If you shoot the monochrome images in RAW format, you can even convert them to color using Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software that comes with the camera.

Cherry Blossoms in the Spring along the Potomac Basin

There’s probably no better place to shoot in D.C. in March than where the cherry blossoms make their annual display. As a gift from the Japanese mayor of Tokyo in 1912, Washington, D.C., was given two sakura (cherry blossom) trees, which evolved into a massive lineup of trees all over our nation’s capitol. Shooting in front of the Lincoln Memorial, you can capture the expansive National Mall with cherry blossom trees and the Washington Monument in the foreground, for iconic images of springtime.
