Breezy day in the Big Apple

The wind was really blowing in the city today and the clouds overhead were moving rapidly from west to east. I used the opportunity to grab a 30 second time exposure of some clouds moving behind the Empire State Building. The day was bright so I used two ND filters totaling 10-stops. With the lowest ISO setting, the aperture was set to give a 30 second exposure at f/22. I had an opportunity for only one nice pass of the clouds before they dissipated.

One thing I learned from shooting the sky at f/22 was how filthy my X-T1 sensor is -- definitely in need of a professional cleaning.

Photographed with the Fuji X-T1 and 18-135mm zoom set to 22mm and f/22 with an exposure of 30 seconds at ISO 100.
