17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Firelight cityscape

I wanted to capture the metallic contrast of the background buildings against the cold blue and pink sky hues. I like the four trees and the older buildings in the foreground. The fire-lit illusion adds to the contrast. I love the early morning sky—always feels very heavy, metallic, shrill with reverberancies usually unheard—all sounds echo into intensities at this hour which otherwise are unnoticed.
