I’m with clients in New York City for a twilight/night photography workshop. Although the weather is gloomy, we learned that nothing can stop the wonderful blue hour of twilight. We photographed lower Manhattan last night and ended up at the beautiful and moving World Trade Center Memorial. Enjoy!
I was in New York last week for Photo Plus Expo, and I had some opportunities to shoot around the city. I was fortunate to get out before Hurricane Sandy devastated the east coast. My thoughts and wishes are with the people struggling without power and whose homes were damaged from the storm.
This shot is of the Brooklyn Bridge (foreground) with the new World Trade Center Building (Freedom Tower) rising in the background. I processed the RAW image using custom WB adjustments to get the hues interesting, followed by Color Efex Pro 4 for the final touches and contrast enhancements.
