Liberty State Park Birds

There is a lovely new environmental Center at Liberty SP in NJ NJDEP | Liberty State Park | New Jersey State Park Service. I saw many winter ducks at the park.

Liberty SP Empty Sky and Liberty

A field trip with Sierra Photo NYC by Ferry from Vesey Street in lower Manhattan to Liberty State Park. The weather was slightly foggy and cloudy. I aimed to maintain a gloomy look. Read about the Empty Sky Memorial NJDEP | Liberty State Park | New Jersey State Park Service

Greenbrook Edits

I downloaded a trial version of Boris FX Optics to see if it is worth purchasing to take my photographs to the next level. I will not buy it. I can do all that Optics offers in Photoshop. If on occasion I want some other presets I have On1 Effects, Luminar Neo and AI, and Topaz Photo AI. What I use the most are Blake Rudis’ F64 Elite panels in Photoshop Zone System Express and Palette Effects Bundle – f.64 Elite ( These buttons in the panels are basically shortcuts to what can be done in Photoshop without the panels. These addons make it faster to get what I want done. Blake’s tutorials explain how they work in detail.

After enhancing my edits and before photographs.
