Photo by @stephenwilkes: Day To Night, Times Square on New Year's Eve. Each year, millions of eyes are on the Times Square, New Year's Eve Ball as it steadily lowers marking the arrival of a brand new year. Whether you are celebrating with a quiet evening in or part of the busting festivities that this night brings, I wish you all a very Happy New year! This image, part of my series Day To Night, was taken over the course of 15 hours, as Times Square transformed from day to night. The best moments photographed are then digitally blended together, reflecting the location's drastic change from day to night, seeing the changing of time in a single image.
