Shooting situations

This shot was taken at night from the 30 Rockefeller Plaza Observation Deck in New York City (Midtown Manhattan). It was taken using a mini tripod and combines tones from 9 exposures.

Further comments

My goal is to capture as much of this world as possible using the technique I employ. Starting on major cities of the world acts as an urban gateway to my project. This iconic scene is at the heart of my Manhattan series and I am proud it was selected.
