swivle, whenever you post pictures and you are not the owner, you have to also post the copyright information.

There are two issues involving direct linking, sometimes called hot linking, that go beyond the courtesy of listing credit.

1. It deprives the owner of the image from getting traffic on their site. This has become an issue at pbase among serious photographers, who post images as samples of their work to attract sales or services. Many want the site owner to disable direct linking.

2. It may seem that posting the site url and copyright credit along with the image is a good tradeoff, since it gets the image owner exposure at other locations. However, this ignores the second issue, which is theft of bandwidth. When you direct link an image that is hosted on another site, you are using the bandwidth of that site to download the image. The site owner gets no traffic to his site, but he still pays for the bandwidth.

No problem, I'm normaly pretty good about it...won't let it happen again


ZippyTheChimp: There are two issues involving direct linking
Agreed Zippy, This is the first time I've hot linked on this forum (I think) ,
I normally use my host for the exact reasons you posted below.
I think all but two threads I created are using my host...and the only reason
I did not use my host then was because we switched servers and our site was down...
I have unlimited bandwidth (hot linking allowed), and I use it!

Clearly not realistic^. (Where's the new WTC?)

Thanks for the pics. Something they showed me, which I'd never noticed before, was the relative lack of highrises east and north of the Battery, and especially along the coast, until post-WW2. Makes you wonder if, had there been more buildings like that one outlier with all the setbacks, the downtown skyline wouldn't have been damaged as much by the likes of 55 Water and its waddling cousins.

On a serious note, that last batch of pictures posted Derek, are they enhanced in photoshop or something? The colors seems much... well, better, than any other aerial photos I ever see.

I saw Pearl Jam at Downing Stadium on Randall's Island September 29th, 1996. That was the best concert I've ever been to, an absolutely amazing experience. There were people lining the Tri-Borough bridge overpass trying to get a view of the Show, they played for over 3 hours. Intense.

I really, really hate that suburban strip mall development shown in the first photo... http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3417/3477841663_ed34c782ce_o.jpg

I've been there. It's a PetCo, movie theater, and maybe a starbucks? It even has a quasi drive-in area. I wonder what the deal with that is. But that's off topic so I will say that it simply detracts from the density in those first photos.

Did the tourist thing with family from out of state. The ESB line was 2 hrs, but Top of the Rock was only about 1/2 hour (and well organized). Bonus: the top of the elevator was transparent, so you can look up thru the shaft as you ascend. Pretty cool.

Has anyone ever tried taking aerial shots of New York from a seat in a commercial jetliner? I've had some really great views of the city flying in and out of Newark and always think I should have had my camera ready.

These are a great set. Thanks.

I've seen quite a few, and some of the pictures earlier in the thread appear to be from airliners. I'm not sure how the people are getting their cameras out during take off or final approach, though. Usually the flight attendants get angry if you have your ipod out and on your person, much less turned on. I can't imagine what they'd do if you took your camera out and started snapping pictures.

Perhaps international carriers are more reasonable? That's my guess.

A slightly different take on "aerial", and much more scary.

Photographer Leans From Rooftops So You Don't Have To

by Amna Siddiqui

http://ny.curbed.com/uploads/art-thumb.jpg (http://ny.curbed.com/uploads/art.jpg)

Pictured in sneaks and skinny jeans is NYC-based photographer and madman Navid Baraty looking down at a Manhattan streetscape from way, way above. (http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/navid-baraty-nyc-intersections) The photographer tells Curbed, "It feels pretty incredible being above NYC. You feel so detached from the city, and it's amazing to just observe the flow of a city from above." Awesome, but we're getting chills just from thinking about it!

http://ny.curbed.com/uploads/navidbaratynyc-thumb.jpg (http://ny.curbed.com/uploads/navidbaratynyc.jpg)

Currently in the middle on an ongoing series titled Intersection, the photographer is documenting city life, flow, and character from rooftops, and is willing tolean over the edges of tall buildings and skyscrapers for the perfect shot. Baraty, who recently did a similar project in Tokyo, began his Manhattan installation of Intersection a few months back. As he found himself working in various sky-high buildings over the summer doing photo shoots, Baraty decided to take full advantage of his rooftop access. Commenting on the buildings, taxis, merging traffic, and swarms of pedestrians seen from above, the photographer tells us, "It sort of just puts everything in perspective and makes you realize how small you really are." Hey, we feel the same way from the ground!
