(Nikon D800, Sigma 15mm fisheye, Exposure 0.5 sec @f/8.0, ISO 100)
After posting several black & white images, I thought it was time for something in color. Last year I had the opportunity to visit New York City to hear my son perform at Carnegie Hall with the Ann Arbor Pioneer High School Symphony Band. It was a terrific performance and a great trip. Naturally one of the places we visited on the trip was Times Square. While definitely a touristy destination, it is also a terrific place for photography. I was prepared on this trip and managed to bring my tripod with me. I was able to set up and take a long exposure to get some motion in the shot. I used my Sigma 15mm fisheye to capture as much of the environment as possible. Processing was fairly simple but I decided to do something a little different with the border. I used one of the acid burn borders from Perfect Effects to create the edge of the image. I’m happy with the way it came out.
