Sunset over New Jersey – New York, New York

There weren’t many compelling structures looking directly west from the Top of the Rock. All we have is the Hudson River and New Jersey beyond that. However, the bright glow of the setting sun, even in black and white, made for an atmospheric image.

A serendipitous mistake added an extra dimension. Despite bight conditions, my f10 aperture forced a comparably slow 1/40s shutter speed. No problem when making urban landscapes, but it often creates motion blur for active people. In this case, it was to my advantage.

I caught a twirling visitor and another walking past. The resulting street photograph has a dynamic and airy-feel different from most of my street images.
