The city that never sleeps - NYC. Recently Claire and I joined 2 other close couples/friends for a weekend in the city. Besides sharing memories together we had some wonderful dining and took in "Jersey  Boys". The trip was a real splurge and we chose to stay at the Hyatt Times Square at 135 West 45th Street. For those of you unfamiliar with NYC, Times Square is in the lower right hand of this image. This sunset image was taken from the patio lounge at the top of the Hyatt. Almost dead center can be seen the spire of the Freedom Tower. I find urban landscapes difficult to do because so much is going on and composition is difficult. But I thought this image did capture NYC. To capture the full dynamic range I did a 5 shot HDR image hand held by resting the camera on the ledge. Olympus OMD E-M5 with 12-50mm m.zuiko @12mm,  f7.1, ISO 1000-1600, 1/10 s-1/60s, tone mapped in Photomatix Pro 5.

David, I don't think I would want to live there. You know me and the old country roads, so this picture gives me a cold chill no matter how pretty it appears. You did give us a good picture though.
