Photographer's Note

Well, I was inspired once again, and this time its Serghei's fault :)

As I think most of you know, Serghei has been in New York City lately, and he has posted several photos of the city skyline with its iconic sky scrapers. I just couldn't help but get in on some of that action.

This photo was taken at the top of the Rockefeller Building, not the Empire State Building.

Both offer amazing and unforgettable views, but without a doubt they differ in their experiences. If you're wanting a more relaxed atmosphere with more space to move around and less congestion, than the Rockefeller is your better option.

Tripods are not allowed, but of course i got away with using my tripod :)

They don't allow you to use your tripod with its legs extended outwards - which i understand as it takes up alot of space. So what i did was I used my tripod as a mono-pod. Braced it tightly up against the wall infront of me to keep it steady for this 5 sec long exposure.

And I know that the horizon line isn't exactly 100% straight, but if i corrected that, than the tall vertical spire would be tilted, so its just a matter of personal choice I guess.

Hope you like it
Have a great weekend
