NYC - Skyline

New York skyline from a hotel window on the 16th floor. Lower midtown. This is not an HDR shot, it is a single exposure.


One of my favorite photos and one of the first shots I posted on flickr. I recently had this printed on canvas and it looks like a painting. I've also reuploaded a larger version to see the detail in the windows:

    Beautiful shot. It is well placed and your rework is nicely done. I too thought it was HDR (as did my wife sitting beside me) until I read your description. Every so often, I basically follow my nose in reworking a photograph and just see where it leads. Sometimes it works out real nice. But you need a great starting like in your photograph to do that. My compliments.
