New York - Brooklyn Bridge Sunset 2

Newer Older

View large on black - as always, highly recommended. Wish you a nice sunday.

See Brooklyn Bridge Sunset no. 1 here:

Thanks again for all the faves and comments there!


Developed from only one exposure (although i had taken 7 raws with different exposures), cross processed and added glow to the sun.

First i wanted to remove the lens flares completely, but i think the light situation lost some authenticity by that, so i just desaturated them a bit.

We were really lucky to catch such a great sunset - an hour earlier we were hiding in a Starbucks as there was a quite hefty thunder storm.

p.s. Of course i did climb onto one of the girders to take the photo! A photographer's gotta do what a photographer's gotta do... ;-)

p.p.s. Oh, i forgot to add... I'm just kiddin' ;-)


Brooklyn (named after the Dutch town Breukelen) is one of the five boroughs of New York City, located southwest of Queens on the western tip of Long Island. An independent city until its consolidation with New York in 1898, Brooklyn is New York City's most populous borough, with 2.5 million residents, and second largest in area. Since 1896, Brooklyn has had the same boundaries as Kings County, which is now the most populous county in New York State and the second most densely populated county in the United States, after New York County (Manhattan).

Though a part of New York City, Brooklyn maintains a distinct culture, independent art scene, and unique architectural heritage. Many Brooklyn neighborhoods are ethnic enclaves where particular ethnic groups and cultures predominate.
