NYC Bird's Eye View
While in New York, Stephanie, Sharon & I explored the island from a bird’s eye perspective. We started at the end of the island looking up towards the Empire State Bldg.
Then we went up to the 102nd floor of the Empire State Bldg and from this view, we’re looking back down from where we had shot up from.
Turn 180 degrees and here’s the view looking up toward Top of the Rock and Central Park. On the 102nd floor of the Empire State Bldg, you have to shoot through the glass. I could see the tint in the glass when I shot it and figured I could remove it in post using color correction but alas, there is still a funny tint to the images that reminds me of old time post cards. Not decided if that’s a good thing or bad thing.
Then there is the view from the Top of the Rock looking back at all you see in the above photos. What fascinates me about these images is the light. The different times of day, direction and quality of light both ambient and artificial. It really dances in the Big Apple!
