Thank you Cathy, Kristen and Nancy. I'm pleased that you found this image interesting. I made a special trip to Battery Park NYC in the late afternoon to shoot the Statue of Liberty as a sillhouette.The sailboat came along a few minutes before my very last shot at sunset. The cranes in the background are a real part of the harbor industrial complex and are used in loading and unloading ships. This is not a composite image. All that you see was an actual part of of the scene. The sky color is largely a result of the smog that is ever-present in large cities such as New York. #714064

Description

This was the last image I took after almost 3 hours of waiting, with camera mounted on tripod, for the sun to be "just right." Usually, I know when I have "nailed" a shot but here I wasn't at all sure. As soon as I arrived home, I fired up Photoshop and viewed the image. I was immediately taken by the quality and power of the image as told by the colors and elements of Freedom and Industry in America. Nikon D1x
