All eyes were on our 44th President elect, Obama, as he made his acceptance speech in Chicago. The 2nd shot, was of the viewers in Times Square, here in New York. What I noticed in the second shot was the ethnic diversity of the crowd ! God, I was so proud of that sight ! All eyes were on him and there was not a sound, while he delivered his history making speech !

Somehow, I double exposed this shot & loved how it came out !

    So were you in New York or in Chicago? Or is this a picture of a TV screen broadcast? How did you "double expose it?" Just wondering what the details are. Nice moment, though, of course.
