• John Hancock Tower, tallest building in Boston.

Boston à l'heure bleue

Newer Older

Comme à Québec la tour d'observation (Prudential Tower) est munie de vitre et il faut prendre la photo à travers un paquet de verre qui reflète la moindre lumière provenant de l'intérieur. Dans ce cas-ci, j'ai placé ma K-7 avec la pancake DA 21mm sur un mini trépied (Ultra-pod II) tout simple, le plus proche possible de la vitre. Mon Tilley a ensuite servi à couvrir les reflets. À voir large sur fond noir

The Prudential Tower has a magnificent view of Boston but you have to shoot through many layers of glass. I used my K-7 and a small pancake lens (DA 21mm f/3.2) on a small tripod (Ultra-pod II, the best 20$ I ever spent on a photographic equipment) as close as possible to the window. My Tilley was then used to cover the eventual reflections. See it large on a black background:

    I find this an extremely interesting image. First, I love city night scenes. The composition really gets my eyes exploring on this image. You got just the right room I'd say. ;-) Super shot. Your Pentax photo gallery is full of excellent night cityscapes. Well, it is full of excellent everything...that elephant image is stunning as it the image of the mom and child flying down the snow in the sled. I just had to let you know how much I enjoy your work.

    Great long exposure night shot. Nice composition and light streams.

    I like this a lot. It's well exposed, and the tiny startbursts, almost too small to notice at first viewing, lift it above the ordinary.

    Thank you all for your comments, well appreciated. I tried to do my best with this shot, knowing that my options were rather limited. I unfortunately had to crop a little bit of the bottom because the window border got into the picture.

    @Laree: Thanks for the great feedback about my Pentax Photo Gallery. This is nice to read when I'm starting to doubt myself.

    Wonderful! I have used it in my brand new book for Kindle called "Home to Boston", a children's photographic and descriptive look around Boston's famous and historical locations. www.amazon.com/Home-to-Boston-ebook/dp/B008YJ6SZ0/ref=sr_...

    Thank you so much for sharing your photo!

    Superbe! Yeah, the view from the Pru is great but you have to deal with the reflections. Too bad John Hancock closed their observation deck: the glass there was better.
