A few more pics of Boston during the summer. Finally got around to working on them. Enjoy.

How does one "just get around" to processing stuff this good?

You'd have to put a rope around me and use a horse to get me away from the computer! :lol:

Nice Work

I love stuff like this, I could look at it all day long. I am really surprised there isn't more of it around. Your shots are very sharp, clean and simply amazing. :)

Yeah a little too sharp. I'm working on this high pass method. Hmm. I need to work on it some more :) It works great for prints, but not so much on the web stuff.

I thought it was just right. Maybe it's my monitor. But the letters in the Prudential sign were nice and crisp. It's refreshing. :)

Great shots, very cool that you got to go up in a helicopter and take them.

Maybe these pictures could benefit from adjusting the levels a bit? They seem a bit greyish. Could be my work monitor though, I've seen your other stuff and I never saw this type of issue.

since your image editing was on I took the liberty to "miniaturize" these shots.
It is hard to get a high angle shot to do this kind of treatment, and it is fun.
Hope you don't mind.
