The 2008 Rockefeller Center Christmas tree
Yet another beautiful tree. I took this on December 5th, at 4:49 p.m. when night was falling on Manhattan. Unlike previous years (here, here, here, here and here), where I rotated pictures to make the tree straight, this year I had the great luck to take a picture remarkably level. It's ever so slightly off that I didn't bother doing anything. There's a little grain in the image, but I didn't have time to try all the different ISO and exposure settings.
The morning before, I ran into some new friends who I've actually been seeing most mornings at Rockefeller Center. (Again, click the picture for the larger image.)
