Fiery Sunset Over Manhattan
On a splendid evening in Central Park, a series of interesting clouds gave way to a brilliant sunset. It seemed everyone stopped what they were doing to photograph it with various devices including phones, DSLRs, and point and shoots. I was using my little mirrorless camera but also had a few tricks up my sleeve. I found a series of textured rocks to use in the foreground and applied my 2 stop grad ND filter to the Olympus OMD. The filter was technically meant for a DSLR and is definitely way too big for the 17mm pancake lens. Yet with a bit of adjusting, it worked just fine. This allowed me to blend the shadowy foreground with the brighter sky.
