What was I to do?
The same thing as about 50 other photographers, capture a city nightscape incorporating the under-construction Freedom Tower and the World Trade Centre tribute.
I don't do a lot of night photography, so I took a lot of shots at many different settings. Quite honestly, back in my film days, this outing would probably have been a bust. Thank you histogram! Getting New York City to stand still for a 30 second exposure isn't easy either. Planes, ferries and other boaters all needed to step aside for a moment.
But, I am pretty happy with the results.
