Default Central Park this morning - November 12th

I took a stroll at Central Park this morning. All along my commute from NJ I saw thick fog outside my window. As soon as we crossed the Hudson and emerged on the other side -- New York City -- either the fog has lifted or New York City never had any. I proceeded to Central Park anyway as the day's lighting seemed to be ideal for photography.

#1) Terrace Drive or what is also known as 72nd Street Transverse.


#2) South end of The Mall.


#3) Gapstow Bridge taken from behind the Wollman Rink.


All images processed with Dynamic Photo HDR, Topaz Adjust, Topaz DeNoise, and Topaz ReMask. C&C welcome. Thank you for looking!

Very nice, surprised you still have some leaves on the trees.

G'day vvc

Beautiful mate, just beautiful
Love the sun's rays in #1; the symmetry of #2 & the peace in #3

Regards, Phil

Thank you for the comments, jj, Phil. I was surprised, too, (pleasantly) that there were still leaves especially after storm Sandy.

#4) Arcade at Bethesda.


#5) Someone left a rose at Strawberry Fields.

All are great, as I've come to expect from you. I especially like #1 with the sun's rays filtered through the trees.

Agree with the rest as in #1 for the win. The lighting, and depth are amazing. Well done.

Besides #1, the lighting in #2 is not bad either. Your pictures make Central Park into a nice place to visit and photograph. A different perspective from what I saw in the " CSI, NY " TV series where you would find dead bodies buried and muggers.
