Certainly not a unique vantage point, but, maybe the PP makes this photo a bit different than what you've seen before. some of the color seems to be lost in the upload for the web. C&C welcome. thanks for looking.

I looked at the rest of your posted stuff... I like your style. This one I don't love as much. Perhaps I know this location too well but I struggle with the pinkish walls. I would probably like it more if I saw it larger, that way some of the detail of the shot balances out the color. Who knows. Nice new way to look at a very common subject though.

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.

part of the color is probably from the PP, but, part of it is from the Christmas-themed lighting. I've never seen it any other time of year, so I don't know what it typically looks like. thanks for your comments.

It almost looks like it was shot with film (and you should take that as a compliment, at least from me). A classic example of implied motion. I really like the post processing too.

This is a shot of Grand Central Terminal. Grand Central Station is a post office.

needs some color correction, and you should open the original correctly exposed image on top of the HDR and mask out the ghosted people

I like what you have going on here. It looks like you brought up the blacks in order to have a stronger ghosting effect of the people. Trouble is, the whole scene in terms of background suffered from that. It is really dark.


I like canon glass.

it's not an hdr. that's the result of the long exposure.

To get rid of them? The ghosted people make this image! :)
