  1. I visited here on Sunday 22 July and will do so again since the landscape here is set to change due to renewal and development.

    I was there in the morning as the sun and sky were better but the downside is the place was pretty much devoid of people. Thanks for looking and feel free to comment & critique.

    The B&W really works for Coney Island, and the sky adds to the shots

    Great photo's. Did you do anything in particular to get the sky to stand out so much? Was it processed as HDR or anything?

    talk about a dramatic sky! Go often, shoot more before it closes and post here.
     
  15. Nice shots, the clouds that day was perfect!

  16. These are excellent. The contrast is spot on.
     
  17. I shot them underexposed a tad with a circular polarizer on the lens. During the b/w conversion I used a virtual red filter to darken the sky and sharpened a bit. I really dig that dark ominous sky look in others' photos I've seen here and elsewhere so I wanted to do it myself.

    Thanks everyone for looking and I'm glad you enjoy the photos.
