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.

When I saw this scene I was struck by the simplicity of the panoramic lineup of New York buildings against the stark, blue sky -- the  Empire State Building on the left, followed by the very modern One Madison Park apartment building, the Met Life tower, and on the far right an older building to the north of Union Square.  I positioned myself to place the flag between two buildings, and waited for it to unfurl in the breeze before taking this photo with a 120mm focal length on the Nikon D800.  The extremely high resolution 36mp images from the D800 allow for cropping without much quality loss.  Here I cropped the top and bottom to achieve more of a panoramic composition.
