Nice Sundown in New York

Newer Older

Today I digged out one of my old New York photos. New York is a great city. Much too great to be discovered in only 3 days.

There are some really pretty motives over there. If you want to see some really mind boggling New York shots go over to Philip Klinger. He did a great Job over there.

Besides I used a wicked processing on this image. I actually didn’t really know why I did it. But you might be wondering why the image looks a bit blurry even though you have the impression of sharp lines and clear parts. That is because I used the Orton Glow style in the beginning. All the things I did after the glow effect where based on it. I was too lazy to do it all over again. Somehow I like the effect because it makes the water in the upper right image golden shivering and it also amplifies the sunrays you can see in the clouds.

If you turn over to full size you can see the boundaries of my equipment. There are colourlines around the houses. This is because of the Tokina 12-24mm I used here. I am really waiting to have enough money to buy a nice D700 and a really good lens to get rid of these things I can’t really stop.

Also I am happy to see all the great photos on your streams. I am really comfortable with all the different styles I see there. As I am most of the time do City, B&W and symmetry photos I am really impressed by your landscape, flower, family, sports and lightpainting shots!

Have a great Sunday!
