Moving the Sun

A large construction crane rises into the sky above the city appearing to move the sun. 

I spent last Thursday walking around with my girlfriend exploring New York City. We walked all over the city, but before checking out the classic holiday spots we started our journey at The High Line. The park built on top of an old railway on the west side of Manhattan and serves as a great place for gardens, art, and just walking around enjoying the views. We made our way uptown to the furthest spot we could reach, and at this point I noticed all the construction going on. This crane caught my eye for its shear size and interesting silhouetted look from the sun backlighting it. I turned on my ND filter and increased my shutter speed and snapped this photo. After reviewing the shot I really liked how the crane seemed to be moving the sun, perfectly balancing the glowing orb on its extended arm.
