(Olympus E-3, 14-54mm at 14mm (2x crop factor), ISO 200, exposure 1/5 sec @ f/3.5)
This is a shot of Radio City Music Hall in New York City. In the background you can also see 30 Rockefeller Center. I was in town on business and walked down to Rockefeller Center to take some shots. I didn’t have a tripod so I had to do everything hand held. I remember standing across the street from Radio City to take this shot. I tried to support myself has best I could in order to get a clean shot. My Olympus E-3 has in camera stabilization and I think that helped keep the shot clear as well.
The shot was taken in color and converted to black & white. The processing details can be found at my photo processing blog, Image Notebook. I really like the 1930’s feeling that I get when I look at this image. The combination of the architecture and the black & white tonality really go together well.
