Reaching for the skyShot with Canon 20D, 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5
@ 35mm, f/4.0, ISO 1600, 1/125s

Today I’m switching it up and going a bit further into the past. This photo was taken on November 23, 2005 from the Top of the Rock (Rockefeller Center) Observation Deck. There’s no back-story here, just a spectacular view. Ironically, the original image really wasn’t anything special, but with a little creative editing (nothing really complicated, even) the image was totally transformed. I think I’ll make a screencast for this one soon to show the before and after – it’s night and day.

And the amount of detail in this shot is astounding. I printed it out on canvas roughly 24×24″ with my new HP Z3200 large format printer, and I can’t wait to stretch it over some bars and hang it on the wall.
