For a while I had wanted some more interesting sunrise shots than I have gotten in the past sailing on the ferry in the morning, but that required leaving the house early enough and catching an earlier boat so I could beat the sun to a good spot. As fate would have it, it turned out the best lighting conditions didn't materialize until the ferry docked in Manhattan. As I was the very last person exiting the ferry and the policemen were nicely asking me to keep moving so they could keep the ferry service on schedule, I didn't have anymore time to change any other camera settings as I was almost about to step off the front of the boat. Fortunately my past experience with sunset shots gave me something to draw from, so as I saw this scene developing through the windows as I was walking forward, I quickly imputed some exposure settings that I hoped might work, and fired off a quick 5 shot burst with my camera as I paused momentarily while walking up the ramp (here's one time I really appreciated how fast it's burst rate is). Turned out the settings were just BARELY good enough to get this scene to work. But I have to admit barely is still better than not at all.
