Home Sweet Home

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.

    everybody is praising the infrastructure, but please do take notice of those dried trees….in this scene greenery  would have been much better…than those huge giants…lol
