Today I’m wrapping up my New England series for the week. The above image is the Boston skyline of the financial district. I had walked the city during the early evening and made my way across the Northern Avenue Bridge towards the courthouse. A friend had recommended this viewpoint for shooting the skyline at dusk. Luck was with me that night as I had wonderful clouds in the sky. Sometimes Mother Nature plays along. Side note: one tip I was taught a long time ago when shooting night city-scapes is to shoot them at dusk. If you wait until night you get little to no contrast with the buildings.
My only regrets were that I didn’t have a wider zoom and was not familiar with HDR photography at the time. This is a single image exposure shot on a tripod processed in Lightroom. Still the Boston skyline shows up quite nice.
The brightly lit archway I believe is a part of the Rowes Wharf if memory serves. Perhaps one of my fellow New England togs can verify this?
That wraps up Bean Town for the week. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
Until next time…
