  2. nice series of images, dez
    i'm taken with the wollman rink image
    there is something unusual about the post-processing... on which i cannot quite put my finger

    the color
    the sharpness
    quite interesting

    what did you DO to that image?
    or... am i nuts?
     
  3. Cool set Dez!
    I'm coming up next week to visit family. Can't wait to try my hand at some of the sights.

    Love the St. Paul's Chapel shot Dez. The garbage floating is a depressing image but an image that unfortunately has become not uncommon these days. Nice shooting.

    Nice series Dez...........#1 (The Door!) is my favorite..........it just interests me! Where does it go, what's behind it, if I enter............do I come back, etc.?

    Also the Wollman Rink is very nice, you bring out the beauty for our city in fabulous ways. Well, except for that East River trash, but what river these days, doesn't have the same stuff floating around.
     
  16. I figured that was a "fitting" title :D
    Yeah, that waterfall is right on the grounds of the Dept. of Sanitation Pier.

    I've seen the Statutes. I don't particularly like them. Everyone's taking advantage of the All-Star Game that's coming up this Tuesday at Yankee Stadium :Curved:

    Thanks!
     
  17. Thank you Mark. I love NYC! :biggrin:

    Cool shots there Dez-man. I like the first door, the bridge and the last door - very nice. The Hulk looks awesome on that bus!

    Ditto on the city Dez...........I love as well! Too expensive to go to the All Star game, but I'm going to the All Star Game home run derby contest on Monday.
