Interesting Photo of the Day: Boston Skyline

The city skyline always looks impressive in photos. In Chicago, you can ride a helicopter and capture aerial shots of the sprawling skyscrapers. Los Angeles can be shot from hiking up into the hills, revealing a sea of buildings surrounding the city’s tallest buildings. New York has a multitude of skyscrapers, including the Empire State Building, ideal for capturing the skyline during the sunset. Photographer Andrea Fanelli captured this image in Boston:

Fanelli used an Olympus OMD EM5 Mark II camera and Zuiko 7-14mm lens for this shot. His settings were 11mm at ISO 200, f/10 and 1/160 seconds.

One trick for enhancing an image’s depth of field is to stack images with different focus points. For this image, the first photo had the railing in focus and the second focused on the buildings. Then, he merged the two frames in Photoshop, increasing the depth of field. The stunning detail throughout the shot helps the foreground frame the beautiful background.
