Sunset over the Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan, New York City

Sunset from the Brooklyn-side tower of the Manhattan Bridge (here’s the view at night).

Clouds to the west blocked any sunset colors, but there was a brief moment where the sky really lit up as the sun peeked through the cloud cover and set right between two towers (so I cranked the aperture to f/18).

I bracketed exposures to capture more of the dynamic range of the scene. Exposures blended with Photomatix.

I used LiveView to focus, which, if there is enough light, does a better job than phase detection and can control for any back- or front-focusing.

Blended exposures (-2/0/+2) / f/18 / 24mm (36mm=)
