This shot was taken not long after Seeking solace in the big apple, and it’s pretty similar, although easily my favorite of the two. What makes this one stronger for me is the connection between the women as they’re gossiping, talking business, complaining about the men in their lives (your guess is as good as mine). For me, it’s interesting the idea of an entire city of people having one huge place to just go relax, talk, listen to music, nap – whatever. It’s a very important part of the city, and there’s just something magical about Central Park.
Once again, processing on this image was pretty minimal. I started out with my custom Lightroom preset, Portrait – Dreamy, and finished up with some slight adjustments to saturation (-) and contrast (+). This weekend I’ll put up another preset or two for download, so keep an eye out for that.
