Roosevelt Island

This is the first of a half dozen posts of photographs made during a trip to Roosevelt Island in the East River on February 17th 2022. The two mile long island is part of the borough of Manhattan, New York. The island was called Minnehanonck by the Lenape and Varkens Eylandt (Hog Island) by New Netherlanders (source: Roosevelt Island – Wikipedia). The trip was sponsored by Sierra Photo NYC. Some of these have augmented skies.

Icy Textures

Snow patterns and textures created on January 30, 2022 plus one from Central Park on February 2.

Bank Street Tree

I had this dark processing in mind when I photographed this tree in the snow. The third of these three processing methods is an inverted image that makes it look a little like an infrared image.

Method: In Photoshop I cloned out the windows, added a starburst protecting the darks, added a vignette, converted it to B&W, and added a blur and masking out the center. In the third one I inverted the image as well.

Green-Wood Doors to Eternity

Green-Wood Monuments

Third in the Green-Wood series. I have a booklet I bought years ago with a map showing where the graves of some of the famous people are buried. Here is a List of burials at Green-Wood Cemetery – Wikipedia

Green-Wood Landscapes

I will be posting a series of images over the next few days created from the photographs that I made on September 16, 2021. Most will be in black and white. These are not straight conversions from color to black and white. I edited them to create the mood I was after.
