St Luke’s and Hudson

Today I took a short walk to St Luke’ Garden and returned home via the Hudson River Park. I am enjoying my new Sony DSC-RX10M4 24-600 mm camera. It is nice and light to carry and the results are acceptable. Processed in Lightroom Classic CC.

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.
