Grand Central Station

Uploaded: February 18, 2008


This is one of the first shots I took upon arriving in NYC!!!! This is just an amazing sight.
Even with a full frame camera, I found it so hard to take a shot that even begins to show how massive this place is! So I instead went for balance.

The light was quite tricky as well.

I adjusted this in CS2.
