Breaking Lose in NYC!

Hand Held Long Exposure by Cynthia P. Hunter Copyright 2012

Watching the sunset on the New York City Skyline while the city lights reflect on the Hudson River is amazing. As dusk subsides into darkness, the city lights take on a familiar glow. As I attempted the long exposures of the perfect architectural skyline, it occurred to me, the image would render New York City in a static state. However, stillness does not describe New York City.  New York City is full of energy, light, color, activity, noise and excitement. Suddenly, I took my camera off the tripod and shifted the camera slightly up and down while holding the shutter button. Releasing myself from the confines of picture perfect photography, and shifting my intentions to convey  the emotions experienced was much more exciting. Here are a few images.
