Here’s a few more shots from around Central Park. Honestly, I could spend a week there and know I’d see something different and wonderful every day – its that great. The photo taken above was shot inside the Bethesda tunnel. Since it was the middle of the day, there had been dozens of people constantly wandering through this gorgeous space so it was a bit of a challenge to capture this image. Equally, because the light was relatively low within the passage (with blown out areas at either end of the tunnel), I opted for a longer shutter speed so I could blur the passers-by and also capture the detail and colour in the walls and ceiling. The resulting image is an HDR from 3 bracketed images I took by bracing the camera against my knee. I think it came out pretty well in the end. Click on the image to see it larger and so you can see some of that sumptuous tile-work.
The following images are just some other random shots I took whilst on our stroll through the park.
Above: Not really sure why I liked this shot; I know its nothing special. I also can’t help but think it needs to be processed differently. I tried some split toning but kept reverting to the original. I suppose I’m a bit low on my mojo tonight. Another time perhaps.
