Plant Screened Bridges

Seaport and DUMBO Doors

Post 6 of 8. For Thursday Doors. The Seaport is in Manhattan, New York City. Brown and Co Stationers is by the 1626 East River low water mark. There are some old printing presses inside.

Dumbo, is an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. It encompasses two sections: one located between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, which connects Brooklyn to Manhattan across the East River, and another that continues east from the Manhattan Bridge to the Vinegar Hill area.

And DUMBO is in Brooklyn There are some fine old buildings inland above the Old Pier 1 on Middagh Street in Brooklyn. See MIDDAGH STREET, Brooklyn Heights – Forgotten New York (forgotten-ny.com).

Old Pier 1

Seaport and DUMBO

This is the first of 8 posts from a photoshoot I did on a Sierra Photo NYC outing with Charles and Carlos. We took the Ferry from Pier 11 south of Wall Street to Pier 1 in DUMBO Brooklyn and stayed until sunset.

Greenbrook Edits

I downloaded a trial version of Boris FX Optics to see if it is worth purchasing to take my photographs to the next level. I will not buy it. I can do all that Optics offers in Photoshop. If on occasion I want some other presets I have On1 Effects, Luminar Neo and AI, and Topaz Photo AI. What I use the most are Blake Rudis’ F64 Elite panels in Photoshop Zone System Express and Palette Effects Bundle – f.64 Elite (f64elite.com). These buttons in the panels are basically shortcuts to what can be done in Photoshop without the panels. These addons make it faster to get what I want done. Blake’s tutorials explain how they work in detail.

After enhancing my edits and before photographs.
