Moon-lit

Seen from the Empire State Building across the East River to Long Island and Queens.

 

The moon was bright enough to shoot with ISO 100 and f/5, so noise and sharpness were much better under control.

 

Tripods are not allowed at the Empire State Building, whose observation platform can get quite windy so this image was my best chance using the balustrade.

 

By the way the three dots at the horizon as a rope of pearls are actually aircrafts departing JFK International Airport. Amazing view.
