OK so maybe I’m getting a little cutesy with the titles here, but I’m assuming “The Rock” and all variants there of have been used to death. I shot this two ways, the first on the other side where you can see the statue of Prometheus (hence fire) in all of his glory, and then again from behind. Both images are good, but I like this one better.
I had to shoot handheld because the security guards were looking at me with a “don’t even try it fat man” look when they saw my tripod. That’s fine. Just guys trying to do their job. I fired off three quick frames at +/- 2 on my Nikon D7000
and went on my way. Most of the post-processing was done in Nik Color Efex Pro 4 and the Lightroom 4 beta. Man I can’t wait for the final release. LR 4 rocks.
Hope everyone is having a good day.
This image is a total rip-off. I know it and don’t care. Let’s call it a tribute to one of my favorite photographer\educators out there, Brian Matiash. Brian used a similar photo during a recent OnOne webinar he hosted. When I had the chance to shoot a similar shot in Manhattan last week, I jumped at the chance. While the shots are not exact there is no doubt where the inspiration comes from.
Thanks Brian. I continue to learn a lot.
