Hudson River, November 25, 2011, 4:53 pm
A spectacular sunset the day after Thanksgiving 2011. This was a stunner as people stopped along Riverside Park to admire the brilliant pink/orange glowing sunset that lasted about 20 minutes. The diagonal streams are contrails from jets coming into JFK or LaGuardia airports.
I shot this with a 17-55 mm lens at 28 mm (45 mm with the 1.6X crop factor) at f6.3, 1/15 second and 100 ISO. This is a pano comprising two exposures. Beyond stitching two photos together, I didn’t do much post-production work due to the naturally brilliant colors from the sunset.
