Times Square

Times Square....A dazzling display of illuminated neon signs and animated screens with an array of mindboggling colours, perplexing our eyes from normality into a visual feast....this place really is something else. I think I visited Times Square nearly every single day I was there.... its sooo hard not to when you see this.

 

I also had an unfortunate accident with my tripod here, whereby I placed it one of those grated areas without knowing and ended up with the head snapping off (camera was ok though) . After a bit of bargaining in one of the many camera shops there I bought a new one for a quarter of its original price :).

 

I was trying to go for a movie look with this image intially...but I kinda got carried away and lost and ended up with this. I am writing up a tutorial on this too...its fairly similiar to my previous tutorial, but this one will focus more on post processing in Photoshop (what I can remember that is). Much of the workflow/techniques I am sure many of you will have seen already and use/used them.
