Default NYC PD Times Square with Lumix 12-32/E-PM2

Was in NYC for a short trip (just under 24) hours right before New Year's Eve for a concert with a friend. We were very much rushed and the weather was grey and a bit rainy so I only brought with me the E-PM2 with the Lumix 12-32mm, a perfect point and shoot like pocket combo.

The one shot I did like was from Times Square which even though it was gloomy everywhere else was brightly lit and crowded as always. I snapped this shot at 32mm and decided to throw the RAW file through HDR processing to give it a stylized look. I hope you enjoy

Ramce, Gee, that is a great shot and nice color and contrast even on a gloomy day. The foreground folks seem to be telling a story which makes the photo even more intriguing. Hah, you must be rubbing noses with Marcello.

Nice shot, Like the HDR processing totally agree with James comment regarding colour & contrast & the people in the foreground also like how New York Police Dept neon sign really stands out from the building.

Thanks James. Yes as my friend had stopped to take pictures of the minions in time square for his young daughter, I turned around and saw the shot, I was lucky to have framed it as well as I did with the lady's red shoes anchoring the bottom and the end of the mural anchoring the left side. I wish I could say I meant it but I have to say I lucked out on the composition, taking a pair and found this one good. And yes the people tell a story! from the woman in the red shoes to the two couples taking selfies, to the man confidently and casually relaxing against the railing of the subway entrance, it says NYC and the topper is the NYPD sign, thanks to them this can happen safely, 24/7/365
