Planting Fields Arboretum B and W

It was such a hot day on Saturday at the Planting Fields Arboretum in Long Island, NY that it subdued my mood. I came with a group of photgraphers and everyone split up, so I spent most of the day alone. I processed these to show how I felt.

For those who like to know. I took the image from Lightroom to Photoshop, applied a black and white filter or converted it to black and white using onOne Effects, then added a brown gradient map with blue in the mid tones in Photoshop. For the lavender and roses I masked out the flowers on an additional violet or pink gradient map.

Governors Island Structures

This is the 4th post of 6 of posts of Governors Island #OPTIC2019. The old Battery Maritime Building has lovely elaborate details and the colors are fun.
