As my candidate for the January Photo Critique theme of Reflections, I chose this photo that I made at the Morris Canal in my hometown of Jersey City, NJ. The Morris Canal is an historic waterway that at one time stretched all the way from the Hudson River to the Pennsylvania/New Jersey border, serving a vital economic purpose by connecting the New York City market with markets in northeastern PA. The section of the canal that remains in Jersey City, which runs inland a little over a mile from the Hudson, still supports substantial boat traffic. This photo was made one evening near the far inland end of the canal where a couple of tugboats sat moored with the NYC skyline as their backdrop. The conditions were outstanding that evening, with beautiful sunset light behind me and uncommonly still air. As is often the case shooting in this urban environment, obstacles made getting the photo challenging, in this case, a chain link fence at the sole vantage point that allowed this view. To get the shot, I had to raise my tripod as high as it would go and then use my camera bag under one of the legs to tilt it forward. This allowed my lens to just barely clear the top of the fence. The tilting LCD on my camera and a remote shutter release allowed me to still capture the photo, shot at F18, 3.7 sec, ISO 160 on a Fujifilm X-T30 and 16-80/F4 lens at 41mm.
