Sunset over Lower Manhattan, New York City

Newer Older

I was outside on Hanover Square when I looked up and noticed a really nice glow coming off 1 New York Plaza, so I grabbed my gear and went to the roof. But I wasn't fast enough. I ended up waiting a few minutes for this wide angle sunset. This is also the first time I corrected for keystoning in Photoshop. Thoughts? Here's the image sooc and uncorrected.

Single exposure / 14mm (21mm=) / 1/40s / f/8 / ISO 200

Huge 2000ish-pixel-wide version.

    Oh, I didn't even know CNX had a perspective tool to fix keystoning. I only found a lens distortion option, which only corrects for barrel distortion. I'll have to poke around more.

    Never mind Andrew. I was thinking of lens distortion.

    I think you did a great job with the keystoning, Andrew. Looks really nice, and a great capture as well.

    Pretty cool - love the angle and the glow. I agree you could correct it a bit more if you wanted it to be fully straight, but it doesn't matter.

    I love the corrected photo!

    My only observation is it looks a bit plastic, compared to the uncorrected version, which looks very real.
    Do you know what I mean?

    But I still love it. It seems magical.
