In The Shadow Of The Seven

 

This is a shot that is not as interesting as I imagined it would be when I took it. Part of it is a lack of sharpness on the buildings and the balconies. But I kind of think there’s still something here.  This is on Roosevelt Avenue in the Woodside neighborhood of Queens.

    There’s definitely something there, Mark. I like the diagonal framing and the building beyond has considerable interest. The light was obviously tricky, but if it was me I would certainly be heading back there for a second shot at this.ReplyCancel

Looking Up Mercer

 

The Empire State Building is everywhere.  Mercer Street in SoHo from just north of Broome Street, on an early Sunday morning.

NB: And boy am I embarrassed because that’s the Chrysler Building (D’oh!)

East River Sculls

 

I was out in Gantry Plaza State park with Rick Louie when I saw this group of rowers heading down the East River in their single sculls. I had no time to adjust any settings on my camera that was set to take motionless landscape shots and barely had a chance to even compose the frame as they were moving surprisingly fast.  I ended up with a too-slow shutter speed than I would have intended that introduced a slight blur to the sculls and rowers, who were also somewhat underlit. But I took what I had and went with it when processing the image.

Oddly, the yello crown of lights at the top of the building on the right resisted all efforts to desaturate it, making it look as if I employed selective color. In fact, I desaturated it about 50% more than the rest of the image an it still stands out. I could have pushed it all the way but I decided its defiance deserved some recognition.

Tom Kat

Two different cameras and different film, but the shots above and below were taken about 1.5 blocks apart and within 20-30 minutes of each other. The live Kat had an uncanny knack for looking right at me and the klens, then turning away at the exact moment in between when I decide to press the shutter and actually do so. I also have no idea if it is a Tom or not.
