Times Square in New York, photographed last October. Does this city inspire me? In more than one way.
Captured with Canon 5DMk3 and Canon 8-15mm f/4 fish-eye lens from the top of the city tour bus. When we stopped at the red light, I quickly snapped a few exposures in succession until I found the one with the best and cleanest composition. Say what you want, but a bus tour is still the best way to see the whole city from the ground, second only to a chopper session.
Image was ‘de-fished’ with the latest RAW Camera Import module in Photoshop CC 2015 which works phenomenally well. Image was then converted into BW with Silver Efex Pro 2 and fused with a colour version with selective colour correction for that Marvel Noir look which I love so much.
I have been dreaming of this moment for a long time now and last night I got the chance to fly over SF and capture it from the air. It was amazing to see the city I have lived in for the last 6 years from above. Thanks Verticalcfi for the amazing piloting skills!
At one of the Kontor houses in Hamburg. When I asked the porter if I could take shots inside of the building, he just nodded in a mildly bored fashion as if to say “ah, another one”. Knowing how many came there before, I was trying to find a different angle.
