Today I’m switching it up and going a bit further into the past. This photo was taken on November 23, 2005 from the Top of the Rock (Rockefeller Center) Observation Deck. There’s no back-story here, just a spectacular view. Ironically, the original image really wasn’t anything special, but with a little creative editing (nothing really complicated, even) the image was totally transformed. I think I’ll make a screencast for this one soon to show the before and after – it’s night and day.
And the amount of detail in this shot is astounding. I printed it out on canvas roughly 24×24″ with my new HP Z3200 large format printer, and I can’t wait to stretch it over some bars and hang it on the wall.
