Lots of people often default into thinking about “the bright lights of Times Square.” Now, Times Square is not one of my favorite places in New York City, yet I do believe that it does illustrate what is New York City—for better or worse.
Here is a photograph of a clown that was walking around the area. Immediately upon me raising my camera to my eye, he broke into this pose. I like the photo because it is a typical scene that you will see in Times Square.
Camera settings: Nikon D3, 28-300mm f/3.5~5.6 at 70mm, ISO 1600, f/5.6 at 1/30th of a seconds.
Lightroom 4—applied Standard preset during import, set white and black points and added vibrance and added clarity.
