15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
New York City Distortion

To achieve this unique perspective of the Manhattan skyline, I dropped a crystal ball in front of my camera and captured this photo with a fast shutter speed as the glass ball fell between my lens and the illuminated New York City skyline, distorting it and creating a unique and captivating view of New York City’s colorful skyline, viewed from across the water. The light’s reflection on the water’s fluid surface add color and texture to the image.
