The Story Behind the Photo #1: Telephoto Sunset

I posted 290 photos and my friends and blog readers voted this photo #1!  I was kind of surprised by that, but that's what has made this whole process so interesting. This photo was basically a test of my new telephoto lens off my terrace here in Brooklyn in January, 2012.

Note: This is the last in a series I'm doing on my photos with a crowdsourced ranking.  You can see all 20 of the photos here.
