When I got the reel developed I was totally unimpressed with the color original of this shot. The BW version here has been tweaked many times over the years till I think now it`s finally the way I want it and I`m gonna def leave it alone now. For sure. I think. In the meantime, cheers for the appreciation :-)

Thanks Jonanna, and you're right… the color version didn't quite have the Gotham City Gershwin vibe:-) Thanks for the great comment!

Shot from atop the Empire State Building NYC back in the early 90`s. Shot on Fuji Reala color print film on a Canon EOS 100 SLR, I converted the image to BW in Photoshop CS2.

The wind was so strong up there I had to jam my light tripod against the wall with my knee... out of the 7 shots I took that evening (about 11 PM), this is the only one that turned out sharp enough to use. I got lucky :-)
