Default New York City in Bloom

It's spring and they're putting flowers all over Manhattan. So what's one like me walking around with a camera to do? Take pictures!

Great shots, um, what did you do with all the people...? I like it whatever you did.

Nice captures; would have loved to see them without all the processing.

Thank you.

lisalonewolf, I asked everyone to please move just kidding. I used slow shutter speeds to make the rush hour crowds nearly invisible. DPHDR further obliterated them. (Slow shutter speeds also allowed me to use narrow openings -- f/22 -- which had the added advantage of keeping near [flowers] and far [buildings] objects sharp.)

camperbc, is there a particular shot you'd like to see the ooc version? I've been showing middle exposures and techniques in past posts, here's a recent example: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/hd...r-example.html.

In #3 above which I reproduce below, I notice that when I used Topaz Adjust's "small details" preset and maxed out the "sharpen" slider to 4.0 the resulting image almost has a Photomatix feel to it, don't anyone agree? It doesn't seem to work for all images though as I tried on some.


A few more.

Nicely blended against the hard buildings VV. Such contrast are truly spectacular!.
