I absolutely love how you take your pictures, they almost look like paintings.
Yes, The Cloisters are a wonderful place, I was there maybe 5 yrs ago. Hubby when he was in college (50's) used to go there to study, no distractions/noise.

Thanks for the pictures

Those are sweet pics. I love the Cloisters. One of my favorite places to visit and take people in NYC when they are in town. People are usually impress by its setting and the religious art.

It's one of the few places that is surrounded by noise but remains a quiet, almost solitude place.

when the lighting is very dim i use a technique called hdr or high dynamic range photography. i take a bunch of shots at different exposures and using special software from photomatix i blend them together . i can blend them and give anything from an artsey sureal look to just very natural looking..

Hard to believe it is in NYC, isn't it? Looks like something from Europe.
