Little Island Structures

The new manmade park, Little Island, in the Hudson River near where we live is immensely popular. There are benches and now that masks are off in the open we can use them. There are food vendors and live performances. Unfortunately they all sold out at the moment. More to come…

High Line Views

Also on last Sunday at the High Line. I look forward to the opening of Little Island in the Hudson. I photographed 2 of the art instantons that interested me.

Hudson River Park

Hudson River Park at sunset. I was testing how much light and noise is created when using my my new 2x teleconverter for the Nikkor Z 70-200mm f /2.8 VR S lens on my Nikon Z7. This 2x teleconverter gives the lens a 100% boost (effectively giving me a 140-400mm f/5.6 Рloosing ~2 stops of light). I think the results of these photos taken in low light after noise reduction in post are acceptable. Once a long time ago I tried a 2x teleconverter on an f/5.6 lens it lost so much light the images were too grainy to use.
