The next in my series of New York cliches.
No trip to the Big Apple is complete without popping up a skyscraper or two. We couldn't be bothered to queue for the Empire State, instead deciding to nip straight up to the Rockefeller Centre observation tower. This is great, no waiting around and it means you actually get to see New York's tallest building instead of being up it.
Having been up both in the day and at night, I can confirm that it's a million (at least) times better in the dark, because you get the full effect of the city being lit up. Also it's cooler so more atmospheric.
This long exposure also required a bit of bodging, I used the same technique as I did for my Grand Central Station cliche shot, balancing the camera using the strap.
It certainly produced a better result than most other people trying to take pictures with their point and shoot cameras using flash...
Comments (and criticism if I'm in a good mood) are welcome and encouraged
