From the top of the Empire State Building, challenging the usual pressing crowd and the wind chill; while waiting for the night to frame the NY lights, the sky took fire with this stunning sunset. This is another shoot for which I travelled to NY. Got it! As usual I've tried to obtain an high level of detail, it is possible to see the most famous bridges, like the Brooklin Bridge and the Verrazzano Bridge then Ellis Island and Liberty Island with the silhouette of Lady Liberty against the red reflection in the water. The golden domes were reflecting the last rays of light and the first artificial lamps like mirrors interrupting the monotone colors of the buildings. I had to export in Adobe RGB to preserve the red gradient however as usual the original image (36,5 Megapixels) has more and more hues and better colors and if printed in large format can reach a maniacal level of detail.
