Kurt Vonnegut famously labeled New York City as "Sky Scraper National Park." I can not agree more. The American city is filled with tall buildings, which are stunningly beautiful. Various old New York Office buildings are visible, each with unique lighting. Some illuminated in sunlight and others in deep shade. New York is the world's business capital with its towering sky scrappers throughout the Manhattan and wall street sections of the busy city.
The architectural detail in this image use light, line, and form to create a great architectural photograph. This image was shot with a Nikon D4s (1/800 sec at f / 6.3) ISO 140. I zoomed in with the Nikon 70-200 mm f/2.8 lens to isolate the various buildings. Several buildings are highlighted with sunlight, and others are cast in shadow. Which is what I was looking for when I composed this image.
In Adobe Lightroom, I switched the urban travel image to Black and White, under-exposed, and boosted the highlights to exaggerate the shadows further. In addition, the picture was slightly adjusted so that the leading lines were perfectly vertical.
