Obviously, this is the Statue of Liberty. This series of photos was taken from Deck 12 of the Carnival Glory sailing out of the port of Manhattan on June 18th. The weather was hot and hazy, with the normal smoggy foggy cloud around the city. With some color correction, I was able to get the pictures to clear up a lot, but still not really sharp. These were shot with my Nikon D300s, with the 18-200mm VR lens with most of these shots being fully extended. Sorry about the spots on the lens... I thought I had cleaned it sufficiently before heading out that morning. GO YOU ES OF AY!!!!
