Grand Central Station New York (with 10-24 and 50/2)
13

Hi,

Some pictures from the Grand Central Station in New York. October 2019 when life was still good and we could travel everywhere we liked.

Hope that in a year from now life will be back to normal again. Have a good day and stay safe!

Great story, lovely images and glad the 10-24, which I have just bought with the recent cashback, performed well.

I agree with you - an impressive station.

Lovely photo's that show off the station very well. Now retired, I commuted every weekday to and from Grand Central for 34 years so you can imagine all the pictures I have taken there and with a multitude of different cameras and lenses. Thankfully the station is so impressive that you don't get tired of it.

Great blog post— though, I was hoping for more 50mm F2 shots haha.

Still on the fence between it and the 56mm. How has it been for you?

Thank you! You will be very happy. It is an impressive lens. The first wide angle zoom I really liked beside the Canon 16-35/4 IS which is also great.

Thank you! It's a spectacular place. You were very happy that you could see it on a regular base.

Thank you. There are more 50/2 images in my next blog post from the Flat Iron building. There are also many 56/1.2 images on my blog though no portraits. I don't want to post portraits of my friends there.

If you want a lens for portraits I would recommend the 56/1.2 or the 90/2. I switched my 56/1.2 with the 90/2 of another photographer. The 90/2 is more versatile. I can use it for portraits and as a high quality tele lens.

The 50/2 is sharp and super small and light but it is not in the same class than the other two. Hope that helps.

Love your shots and I love Grand Central.  The PBS documentary some years ago is still (!) worth watching. Quite a history and place.

I really like this thread.
