57th Street Christmas Star

So this is the same star as yesterday: the star, or snowflake, above 57th Street and Fifth Avenue. This time I’m standing on Fifth Avenue just above 56th Street and looking uptown.

I’m not sure why but I had all kinds of trouble getting a black and white image I was happy with. I made this two nights ago, and when I looked at it last night I didn’t like it. So I spent considerable time making about 4-5 other versions, and each one looked worse as soon as I compared it back to this. So I went back to this first effort and here it is.

    I love this Mark. I love the beautiful “grittiness” that comes out in B&W. Perfect.ReplyCancel

    Classic gritty, contrasty B&W. I love this. You’ve done a tremendous job with this.ReplyCancel

    What a great ‘classic’ NY scene. Love the choice of B&W too.ReplyCancel
