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.

I saw this view of the Empire State Building while coming out of the subway station.  I had my Fuji X100 set for monochrome capture.  Whenever I do that, I also set the camera to capture in both RAW and JPG.  That way I can always redo the monochrome from the full RAW file in Photoshop where I have more control, or I can keep the color version if that is more interesting.  In this case I was torn between the two versions.  The color image had an overall warm ochre cast that resulted in a monochrome look anyway.
Here is the full monochrome image.  It has more of a nostalgic feel and strong graphic of angular lines.
