The light doesn't reach the street in NYC's canyons of concrete, steel and glass until after I reach work and it's dark by the time I leave so I have to be creative and use the light that's available and find things to lean on or against to steady my camera. This is not layered or a double exposure. The color and reflections are as they were yesterday morning, shortly after 7AM, when I took it.

Exif: F Number: 4, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 10/600 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 400, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 18.00 mm, Model: NIKON D200
