All the images in this post were taken from the same location on different days, or different times of day. In each of them I composed for the weather phenomena that was occurring and kept the main subject, the Empire State Building, subservient to it. All were done with the Fuji X-T1 and either the 18-135mm, the 14mm, or the 10-24mm lenses.
|Pretty much a standard view of the entire scene, but again at 10mm to gain the maximum effect from the dramatic formation of the overhead clouds.|
|Sometimes it is the effect of weather on a scene that yields the interesting photo. Here I used the long 135mm focal length to capture the colorful reflection of the setting sun in the windows of the Empire State Building.|
|Yet another day with yet another, different cloud formation to illustrate my point. Same scene and treatment as some of the images above but with a uniqueness due only to the difference in weather phenomena.|
|A deep blue, morning sky was crossed with jet contrails. I converted the image to an infrared version of black and white to emphasize the stark abstract pattern made by the white lines against the blue sky.|
|Here I photographed the fragmented and abstracted sunset reflection of the building in a nearby window.|
|Another infrared interpretation as an early morning fog cleared out leaving part of the steeple in the cloud.|
