This was taken late at night after me and my brother finished visiting the top of the rock. This is one of the most pictured items at the Rockefeller Center.
I shot it handheld whilst resting on a railing which was below the statue. It is a three frame HDR tone mapped in Photomatrix and then finished off in Photoshop.
A tip that I would like to share is that I think in images which have a totally black sky you should try and find a shot where the sky has some colour in it like the above shot has purple I think that it leads for a much more interesting image. I think that the HDR process has brought out the purple in the sky and it has helped the image look more interesting than by doing this.
