Thirteenth and Meatpacking

I pulled this one from the archives. It’s about 2 years old and I don’t know what to say about it. The scene pretty much speaks for itself and I don’t have anything to add in the way of history or insight. The partially destroyed mural is a mystery to me.

Processing was straightforward, except that I increased the contrast more than I usually do because I liked the darker shadows and the empty black windows on the top floor. I also did a partial desaturation of everything except the sky.

Oh, and it’s really 13th Street and Ninth Avenue.

    Nice image, Mark. The contrast of deep color in the sky with the subdued tones of everything else really works well.ReplyCancel

    I like the darker shadows, too. Looks kind of desolate, even with the trucks hanging around. Nice one bud!ReplyCancel
