The architecture in New York is fascinating, and when brilliant design winds up with an even more brilliant natural backdrop like these clouds, you really have something special in a photograph. Taken with a Carl Zeiss 50mm f2 Makro Planar lens, which is optimized for closeup work, but can obviously hold it’s own for landscapes and cityscapes as well.

In unfiltered one and unfiltered two I told you how I’m not fond of using filters to create unrealistic colors and drama in photography, and unfiltered three is one more example of how amazing nature can be if you pay attention to it. This is straight out of the camera with no filters or processing of any kind. Taken with a Zeiss 50mm f1.4 Planar lens, f/5.6, -1EV, 1/40, handheld.

The brilliant red orange sunset contrasted with the muted soft grays and blues of the late evening sky really set this photo off for me. If you allow your eyes to look through the bridge, which is where the spot focus of the camera is, it almost looks like the horizon is on fire, which in a way it is since the sun is what is creating that intense glow.
The Zeiss 28mm f2 lens that I shot this with draw warmth like this so well, especially on the Canon 1DX with its incredible metering capabilities. Wonderful combination for late evening photography, especially with long exposures on a tripod.
