What an interesting week.  Started in rural Missouri with a biotech corporate magazine shoot that is embargoed till next quarter.  Went to NY to visit with clients, old friends and a visit to B&H.  Top of the Empire State Building with two Julies and was inspired by the wonderful old photos of its construction that I made this photo.  For my photoshop friends it was shot using Auto Exposure Bracketing with 3 exposures two stops apart.  Toned invidually in Lightroom, exported into the HDR program Photomatix and tweaked for a super sharp effect.  Opened in Photoshop with final toning using NIK Silvereffects Pro II.  Best part was the old friends.
