NYC Watertowers

The haze of the city still permeates the air as the summer comes to a close. From Union Square Park I looked uptown through the trees and spied these rooftop water towers. So quintesentially NYC.

The trick was to capture that hazy summer sky and the deep shadows that were falling fast on everything.

Of course I did a notan to freeze the shadows and have reference for them. Then I made sure to use lots of analogous colors and their complementary colors for the shadows. I can remember how beautiful it all looked and I hope that it gets translated in the picture for my viewers.
