Jersey City Sunset

A long exposure captures a dynamic sunset over Jersey City, New Jersey. According to photographer Tsuyoshi Shirahama, it was a perfect day to take sunset photos, with strong winds causing the many clouds to move quickly. “I selected [a neutral density] filter without hesitation” to get this effect, Shirahama writes.
