Central Park as dusk falls from the top of Rockefeller Center

    Newer Older

    It was a nice clear night, which I normally don't like for these sorts of shots. I prefer the sky to have some clouds and a bit of drama... but the best thing about a clear night is a little 10 minute window when the sky has a nice spectrum of blues and light reds while the sun plays with the atmosphere. Big cities always start to light up right around this time, so it's prime photo-takin' time. I thought the deco border of the building looked pretty cool, so I was aiming to have it become the bottom grill along the border.

    For those of you that have never been to New York, Central Park is that big green rectangle in the middle there. You can see a few lakes, trees, and paths scattered about.

      Top of the Rock is a great place for photos since it's one of the top observatories without glass barriers!
