|Sun setting over a Lake, c. 1840, by Joseph Mallard William Turner|
Borrowing from Turner's technique, I allowed the magnificent sunset shape of clouds and color to over-power most of the composition with Manhattan and the Hudson River playing a minor role below it.
The sunset lasted for less than five minutes and was at its peak right at sunset. I used a Leica M 240 and Leica Summilux 35mm lens set to f/5.6. You never quite know when a sunset will be at its peak so I always wait out the scene for 15 minutes before and after the actual sunset time.
