Christmas at Bryant Park

The tree lighting at Bryant Park last night brought TV reporters, big crowds, and best of all, Ice Skaters! I got there early to photograph the warm ups, and had a front row seat right next to the CBS camera crew. The sun had already set, so it was time to crank up the ISO.
Camera settings: 70-200mm, f2.8, 1/250th, ISO 800.
Applied some noise reduction in post processing.
