Planting Fields Doors

More from last Saturday with the color baked out. I snuck in one with a hidden door. I noticed that Olmstead had a hand in designing the Main Greenhouse. Planting Fields Aroboretum State Historic Park is in Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York.

Conception Door

My husband, Marc Felix, was conceived in an apartment in this building in 1945. Soon after that his family moved to Horatio Street.

Scotney Castle Process

My version of Old Scotney Castle by Ryan Photography for June’s Before and After Challenge.

First, I brought Ryan’s picture into Photoshop and filled in the people and a few branches at the top of the image. Next, I opened the image in OnOne Effects and added an HDR evening metal effect, which I altered to suit. I brought it back into Photoshop and imported a sky. I masked out the original sky to let the new one show through. To tone down some of the color and make it less Disney like I added a black and white filter layer and masked out some of it to let the color show through in places. For fun I imported two eagles, masked them out and placed them in the sky.

Governors Island Doors

I photographed a few doors while on the #Optic2019 tour of the island on Tuesday.

Belfry and Fire Doors

FDNY 14 c. 1894 is one of many lovely old firehouses in New York City.

The Belfry has a nice lamp.
