Home Sweet Home

By |2013-01-21T09:15:38+00:00Jan 20th, 2013|

I had a really nice time catching up with Dave and Noreen Veffer, their daughter,Scott Wyden Kivowitz, his wife, Melissa, and Howard Hoffman. We tromped around Central Park and finished it off with some classic NYC pizza.

In terms of processing
I took two separate exposures here. The first was a long exposure using my Lee Big Stopper to help glass out the water and the second was metered for the sky and buildings. They were masked together to get a balanced exposure. I put the finishing touches on this image in Lightroom 4.3.
