One Headlight by Smokreations

Thanks to everyone who looked at and voted on my last post. Here is another from that evening that I thought was worth posting as well. Only one of the streetlamps was working, so I thought it would make a good subject for selective color. As always, I appreciate your views, votes and comments.

Hey, come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There’s got to be something better than
In the middle
But me & Cinderella
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight

The Wallflowers – One Headlight

Whenever one of my shots needs a little more oomph, I turn to Silver Efex Pro, my go to B&W program.

The Flatiron Building, originally the Fuller Building, is a triangular 22-story steel-framed landmarked building located at 175 Fifth Avenue in the borough of Manhattan, New York City, and is considered to be a groundbreaking skyscraper. Upon completion in 1902, it was one of the tallest buildings in the city at 20 floors high, and one of only two skyscrapers north of 14th Street – the other being the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower, one block east. The building sits on a triangular block formed by Fifth Avenue, Broadway and East 22nd Street, with 23rd Street grazing the triangle’s northern (uptown) peak. As with numerous other wedge-shaped buildings, the name “Flatiron” derives from its resemblance to a cast-iron clothes iron.

The clock built by Hecla Iron Works in 1909, sits in front of another building that was once named the 5th Ave. Building, now houses the Toy Center. (Wikipedia)

Manhattan Skyline: New York City by kptripathi

I stole a moment from this amazing evening… Sneaked out of work at evening during my business trip to New York City. Went to top of Empire State Building to capture this…
I had to keep my camera on the wall at 86th floor observatory (You can not carry your tripod with you there). I took 10+ shots of this scene, only one shot was clear without any blur as gusty winds were shaking everything. You have to be lucky to get the long exposure without any shake, overexposure or underexposure, within 15 min of dusk time when ambient light is same as city lights..
