It was late afternoon. I was coming out of a movie theater when I saw this scene with the light hitting the Empire State Building and all the vertical lines working together to form a strong, vertical composition. Fortunately, I had the Fuji X-T1 and 18-55mm lens with me and was able to capture this one shot. It's times like this I'm glad I always travel with a camera, and a compact package like a Fuji X-camera and the short zoom offers both the convenience, the quality, and enough versatility for most grab shots. The camera was set to 16:9 crop mode, which helped accentuate the vertical lines in the composition.
