THIS SITE IS MOVING TO ANOTHER LOCATION:

This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

Since it began, I have been documenting the construction of the new World Trade Center.  Because I don't know what the final best angle will be, I have been photographing from six different vantage points.  In order to bring out the flag and building on the left, both of which were in deep shadow, I had to fuse three different exposures that were 1-stop apart.  I used Photomatix, an excellent HDR program to combine the three images.

Both images were taken with the Leica M9 and 21mm Elmarit lens at f/8.  This image shows 1 World Trade Center with 64 of the intended 104 floors completed.  A floor is added about once a week.  I document the progress every three months.
