This image was captured just before sunset from the Top of the Rock in Rockefeller Center.  It was crowded up on the platform on that particular evening but I managed to nestle into a spot right in the middle of the overlook.  I loved the golden glow that the setting sun cast on the side of the buildings in Manhattan.


My name is Dave DiCello and I am a photographer from the Steel City of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. With each passing day, my passion for photography grows as it becomes a larger and larger part of my life. I love taking pictures of the Pittsburgh skyline, the Pittsburgh Penguins, places I visit when traveling with some portrait work thrown in as well. The type of photography that I specialize in is HDR (High Dynamic Range) and continue to refine my skill in it every day.
