Central Park Early October

Autumn is a season that I love and feel strongly.  At last I was able to go outdoors to make these photographs in these 3 galleries. I was laid low for a few weeks. I’m all better now.

Processed 2 Ways

Two examples of before and after processing in Lightroom. The first in each row is straight out of the camera and unprocessed; the second black and white, with attention paid to color and detail; and the third is my version of the color image. The last two in each row were originally posted on 9/21/2017.

I create images that I see and not what the camera sees.

 

 

On Swainson’s Day

Today I saw so many Swainson’s Thrushes they were uncountable. Many Northern Fickers, some fall warblers and a few early White-throated and Lincoln’s Sparrows and a Junco.

Mist and After

We started the day early when it was still foggy this Sunday, September 17, in Central Park. I hoped for Fall warblers but didn’t see many today. If I take the time to look I can always find some interesting things to photograph.

Birds Butterflies Flowers NYC

I’ve been taking it easy and not posting frequently. Photographs from some recent trips to Jamaica Bay NWR and Central Park, New York City.

Flowers CP July

Same hot day I photographed the insects in Central Park. There are are quite a few wildflower beds around the park. The Conservatory Garden is good for flowers too. I love the bokeh on the Nikon 105 mm f 1:208 Micro lens. No special effects. OK, so the last one is a tree.
