Photographer's Note

42nd and about Madison I believe.

This was an interesting scene for the camera to capture. The top of the picture was broad, bright golden daylight while the street level had already embraced the darkness of night. My D30, mighty as it is, couldn't hope to capture all this dynamic range in one single exposure. I braced myself against a lamp post and left the shutter open long enough to get some natural blur on the man walking. I wanted to convey the two conflicting times of day in one photograph, but there's no way I could keep the shutter open that long to create those kind of light streams without blowing out all the natural light portions of the photograph. A little photoshop magic was required at this point. Check my workshopped version to see the steps involved in creating this final version.
