I'm not going to lie.  I was on a mission to try a taco place that I've passed by a million times, so I forced the idea of shooting the sunset near the Colgate Clock in downtown Jersey City, near Taqueria Downtown.  I think it turned out well.  I had some excellent tacos and a really awesome margarita (or two), and got a few keepers from the shoreline.  I went with a few different long exposures while the light changed.  I always liked the look of crisp objects in almost foggy-looking water.  Orange, purple, and blue/green.  I'm partial to the purple one.  I think I'm going to pick up a 9 or 10 stop ND filter to try for some long exposures during the daytime.  As always, any comments and critiques are welcome.  You can click the above pictures to go to each one's individual photo page, where larger images are available to view.

So many different ones to try!

I'm only doing one of these next time.  These were strong, but still highly recommended.
