Award Winner | Photo of the Day | May 27, 2012
This photo was taken from on top of a 31 story building in Brooklyn Heights. At night it offers a commanding view of the Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan. Being up that high and staring at the city that never sleeps makes for an incredible sight. There’s nothing quite like the New York skyline, which is why people pay millions to have this view.
Technical Info: Fuji S9100 | ISO 80 | Exposure 16sec @ f/11

Photographer: Chris Horner (Charlotte, North Carolina USA)
Chris Horner is a freelance photographer based in Charlotte, NC USA. Chris started becoming serious about photography about two years ago. His main topic of interest is in capturing urban scenes. Chris started primarily with this theme, and then carried his photography skills into another area that he loves – vehicles and racing. Others began taking notice of his work through what he shared on the web and in person. Soon he was creating fine art prints for people to enjoy in their homes and offices. That in turn got the attention of some local small business owners, who started requesting Chris to create images they could use in their marketing. Chris is looking to grow his commercial business since he has always enjoyed working with other entrepreneurs and helping business owners find success in their endeavors.
