Construction crews raise the "top" piece of The Harrison Wednesday afternoon after workers and members of the general public were allowed to sign it.

Looking Up

Camera: NIKON D3S

Shutter: 1/500 s

Aperture: f/3.2

Exposure Setting: Manual (Spot Metering)

ISO: 800

Strobe Flash: Did Not Fire

Lens Focal Length: 14 mm

White Balance: Auto

Shooter's Comments: Even though there was the threat of rain the lighting and sky couldn't have been more perfect. Overcast days are my favorite for shooting architecture, since there is nice even light and you have the freedom to shoot from any angle.

Also, lately, I've been noticing my new-found love for my 14mm lens. For me, right now, it's the best storytelling lens I have in my bag. I'm sure it's just a phase, as the last one was the 50mm lens, but I love filling the frame with this lens. With the 14mm, I was able to incorporate the doomsday sky and The Harrison. I also like the fact that the workers in pink shirts stand out pretty well from the front all the way to the back with the crews looking over the roof waiting to receive the "top."
