New York City​ skyline at night


The New York City skyline with the New Yorker Hotel and Empire State Building prominently visible in this gritty black and white photograph.  If anything can be unique from a New Yorker’s perspective, this image was shot at night from the water at extremely high ISO. The extreme ISO adds quite a bit of grain, which in this case, with the subdued lighting, gives the image the drama I seek in my photographs.
