A photo from the Optic 2017 cruise before and after I worked some magic in Photoshop by adding clouds. #BHEventSpace
As part of the free Optic 2017 event held by B&H I went on the evening cruise around the tip of Manhattan. The 4-day event was fabulous—so many lectures and camera goodies to see it was overwhelming. The speakers were tops. If you want to see some of the lectures some were recorded. Thank you all at the B&H Event Space.
The weather was foggy and damp, so all my photographs were a flat gray. I added a few clouds to some of them in Photoshop.
New York harbor at night reminds me of when I returned to America in 1960 from London. I was a young teenager then. The view of the harbor and city lights was beautiful and romantic, but at the same time sad because I was so sad at leaving my home in London.
It took a bit of effort to go the three block is the snow early Saturday morning. I had to get a few photographs of New York City’s first snowfall of this winter.
A team effort by my husband, Marc, and I. I wasn’t able to go out on July 25, 2016, so I adjusted the camera settings and sent Marc down the block to take some shots of what I could tell would be a lovely post thunderstorm sunset. The photos were a bit too dark but I was able to fix that in Lightroom.
At the end of the street where I live is the Hudson River. It is pleasent there of a summer evening. When I took the first image a Black-crowned Night Heron happend to be flying by.
Sunset at the end of my street in Manhattan, October 22, 2015. Some of these I stitched together in Photoshop.
Just a narrow channel clear for shipping left in the Hudson River, Lower Manhattan. This much ice is a novelty for me.
