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.

As part of the September 11 observance in NYC, lights representing the twin towers illuminated the city skyline beginning at sunset.  The new World Trade Center building can be seen rising on the left. These photos were planned for a few minutes after sunset to preserve the detail and color in the city and sky.  A cloudy sky absorbed the color of the city, producing a reddish glow on the horizon.

Both images were captured with a Nikon D700 camera and 24-70mm Nikon zoom.  Exposures varied as the light changed, but generally ranged around 1-2 seconds at f/5.6.  For information on the importance of timing in taking night photographs like these, visit my learning blog by clicking here.

Midtown Manhattan also made a nice photograph with the sky absorbing the city lights.  Photographed with the Nikon 70-200mm zoom.
