I got a bit tired of this photo, the Manhattan skyline seen from Brooklyn, course I had seen it so many times before.
So I decided to put it through the FocalPoint 2 grinder and just defocus the whole thing, and this is what came out of it.
It’s a panorama made of 5 photos.
This one is made from the top of the World Trade Center in Tokyo, where you have a great view of the city.
It’s made through a window and unfortunately the was some reflections from the window in the sky part of the photo, that I was able to remove, and that’s the reason for the photo being a bit to dark at the top to My liking’s, but I still like the rest of it and there for chose to post it here on the blog anyway.
I made a quick stop on the middle of the bridge, went over to the railing, where I sat down my camera to make 7 exposures for a HDR photo. But there where to many cars crossing the bridge, which made the bridge – and the camera – shake every time. So I decided to make some shoots hand-held instead.
I measured the light close to the sun – in spot mode of course – to get the right mood of the sunset. the photo is a stitch of 3 shoots with a 35mm lens. All post work is done in Photoshop and Lightroom.
I went to see Watergate – yearh I know, it’s a real downer, nothing to see there, but I had to go – and after that I walked next to the river and end up in this hideous mall thing, I then walk up Thomas Jefferson st. to get to M st. on My way up there I came across Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park, a canal and towpath trail that extends from Georgetown, D.C. to Cumberland, Maryland, a distance of 184.5 miles (296.9 km), and which in the period of 1831 – 1924 was used to transport coal from the Allegheny Mountains to Washington D.C.
I decided to walk along the canal and explorer it for a while and then walk the rest of the way to M st. further down the path.
It’s a single RAW HDR photo, conceived from Miss Photomatrix and Mr. Photoshop.
