Gotham, The Big Apple, and Manhattan are words synonymous with one of the world's most amazing and vibrant cities. Bustling with activity, and the hub of fashion, food, and luxury, New York City is a place unlike any other. I just arrived in NYC for a few days, and the weather forecast basically gave me one shot to photograph sunset over the city's skyline. For years I've been wanting to go to the infamous Brooklyn Waterfront, but I never had the chance. That was about to change, as I decided to gamble it all, push luck, and go for the shot. Minutes after getting to Manhattan from the airport, I ran for the subway, tripod and camera in hand. I emerged from the underground station in Brooklyn and noticed gorgeous warm evening light bathing the buildings. Without a moment to lose, I made my way to the waterfront, setup my camera, and started shooting. The result, as you see here, is spectacular. The photograph is like New York City itself, larger than life and grand in every way.
