This is the view from up on the Manhattan Bridge as the storm clouds rolled in. Used a 10-stop ND filter to get the long exposure. The thunder and heavy rain came about 15 minutes after this exposure.
This is one of two images from that afternoon. The other is an image of a lightning strike near a barge, and can be viewed here.
Having fun experimenting with some cool black and white post-processing techniques, but in the end, leaving behind some of the original tones.
So i attempted some long exposures hoping they would look decent in black and white. This one was about 200 seconds.
One image from the archives and one that I didn’t think was salvageable, thats why its important to keep checking through your photos from time to time as you do find that odd image that you miss from time to time.
I had spent most part of this morning working on another image that I took yesterday around Scarborough but just wasn’t really getting anywhere with it, no matter how I edited it I just didn’t feel it was right so decided to leave it and try another photo, don’t worry I will revisit that image sometime soon.
Anyone else get frustrating days like where you just can’t get the editing right?
I hope your all having a good week so far!
