Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

New York City in a Lovely Shade of Tonemapped June 27, 2008

I had nothing new ready for tonight so I thought that I would post some of my favorite photos from new York City from December.

I tonemapped the single RAW image in Photomatrix.

This one is called : MUTED CITY

I call this one: I HEART NY

Let me explain why:

I got to this photo and and I stopped in my tracks when I saw the shot after tonemapping! Take a look at the skyscraper on the left! The sunlight shining on the building created a…..HEART! heart.gif! I couldn’t believe it and I felt it was really special. This was not manipulated.

This photo of Times Square has become another favorite of mine from that day mainly because I love how the sun is shining in the top left of the photo and then the light literally makes its way across the street like a spotlight.


I hope you love them as much as I do!

When I get my new place I hope to blow some of these up to hang them.

    The one with the heart continues to stand out. And, I’m not sure why, but I’m also really drawn to the NYPD image.

  9. Hi Jen,
    Looks like you are well on your way to HDR passion. It looks like the skies cooperated, which makes for high impact HDR. Keep up the good work and may you capture the full range of life too!!
