Empire View (P1290741_2_3_4_5_tonemapped)
I had plenty of time to kill up on the GE Building Observatory before the fireworks started, but the light was very harsh for most of the time with hazy skies. Just as the sun was getting low, some thick clouds blotted out the sun almost completely. There was just a hint of pink in the southern sky for this shot. I took some more shots as it got darker, but I didn't get the focus right due to camera shake.
