First part of my HD slideshow series about New York City architecture in B&W.
In last few years I took few thousands pictures of NYC architectural details. Well, to be honest, much more than few… Weirdo I am, I have over 10 000 pix of just one building. Though, to my defense, it is my favorite building in New York.
From the few thousands I selected few hundreds pictures to create few slideshows, and this is one of them.
All photographs used here are B&W tone mapped HDR images. So, as some might figure, its takes quite some work from time pictures were taken to moment they become final images ready to be presented to the world.
Yes, I heard about “golden hour”, and that architectural pictures should be taken on the cloudy days, under softer light because it makes them look “better”. Just like I heard how midday sun makes everything to look absolutely horrible. Hmmm…
I guess I didn’t get that memo on time, or maybe I like my pictures to look horrible, because I took most of them in the “worst” possible time. Or maybe, being nice guy I am, I just didn’t wanted to step on somebody’s toes in the crowd of golden hour photographers. So I choose long and hard way of HDR.
Hope it won’t be too hard for you to enjoy it!
