excellent shot. I like the composition and exposure. What city is this?

Great exposure, but not sure I like the tilt in the horizon. It's kind of off-setting. Architects like their buildings straight up and down.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken from the Manhattan bridge in New York, overlooking the FDR drive.
Time
I want to say this photo was taken around midnight. I had been exploring the city after work, and ended my night at the Manhattan bridge. Expecting to be home early (around 11pm), I ended up spending a couple hours on the bridge. It was a cold night, and my tripod wasn't high enough to get where I needed it so I ended up propping it up between the metal.
Lighting
This was a 30 second exposure, which made for some great streaks from the cars below.
Equipment
Canon 5d Mark iii, with a Tokina 16-28mm lens.
Inspiration
I moved to NYC about a year ago and kept seeing this shot on Instagram. I had never been across the Manhattan bridge so figure it was about time I get out there. I did some color toning to (hopefully) give it a different vibe then you've seen before!
Editing
Yep! I brought out the clarity, and added some contrast, as well as toned the colors.
In my camera bag
Canon 5d Mark iii, Tokina 16-28mm, Canon 50mm, Canon 70-200mm, 10-stop ND, tripod and flash.
Feedback
Learn your camera in and out. I truly believe anyone can make great art with a creative eye (no matter the equipment). If you know how to use your stuff you'll be able to capture your vision with what you have available.
