New York City Skyline, Lower Manhattan over East River from Brooklyn Bridge Park with Long Exposure Water Blur
I had a 3 hour window last Friday afternoon to shoot the New York skyline from the Jersey shore. I met up with an acquaintance from Instagram that lives in the Jersey City area. The clouds were looking super promising, both in the sky and in the forecast. By the time I got down there though, the clouds disappeared. I grabbed some frames anyway from the first spot, but the next location we planned was buried by an unusually high tide. So, with not many options we ended up driving into Brooklyn to shoot the skyline from the opposite direction. At this point the day, the lighting was about as tough as it gets, but I did my thing anyway. I caught this frame just before the sun was going to dip in the frame though, so I was lucky in that respect, and the tide had lowered just enough I could get this angle and only suffer wet shoes.
