NEW YORK, NEW YORK – The Waldorf Astoria. Here’s a Wikipedia article on this deco landmark. The photograph is taken with my Leica M9 and my new 36mm Summilux II lens, with a neutral density filter to permit shooting at f 1.4 in daylight. More work on out of focus images. The overexposed area in the lower right is intentional – dramatic overexposure can result in a banding artifact with some digital cameras – I removed some banding in this image in Photoshop.
On this day one year ago: Brooklyn Bridge
