NY Blue Blues by nigel3 NY Blue Blues by nigel3
NY city intersection.
So many people have asked about this photo, I thought I should answer some of the questions.
No, its not done in photoshop and the blue is not added. Basically I took the photo and dropped all of the colors to black and white and then pulled back blue, I also brought back a hint of yellow to highlight the yellow cab. Ironically even the blue is lower than recorded by the camera, there is just so much blue neon lighting on this street that it just punches up like that compared to the other colors which have been dropped.
I took the picture from the middle of the intersection when the light was red, handheld... I had to watch for the light to change. I walked out 3 times and got about 8 or 9 shots in total, this one I liked the best... I actually wanted the two cars leaving and entering the scene, I felt it represented what I felt as I stood there...
Thank you so much for all of the positive feedback.

Daily Deviation

Suggester Says: "I feel as though the hustle & bustle of New York city is being drowned out by the vibrant, neon blue lighting. Creating a calm, ambient atmosphere to help portray the true beauty New York city at night."

Hello,

So welcome to this site... It fairly intuitive and people here are really nice.  Simply post things that you create and/or look at the works of others and comment or fav the ones that you like, over time you will come to understand the people and the process.. just have fun in the meantime.

Lama's seem strange, they basically are a way for people to say thanks to one another... simply give them a lama... its says thanks.. for so many things.

Nigel

Never seen photos of New York done like this with the blue! Brilliant! 

What is the highest quality/resolution you have of this photo? I would be interested in getting a large print made for my house if that would be ok with yourself?

I believe that it is 20.4 mb.  Yes, I am completely ok with that.

Ahhh I understand now. Sorry I am new to the site and not quite sure how everything works! When I seen that the downloadable file of the picture was only around 6.5mb I was worried that that would be the file used if I order the picture from the website! 

Do you have any opinions on what you personally feel looks best in regards to the finish that is chosen for prints of this picture? Is this site the only place where I am able to purchase it?

No problem. 

It is on this other site as well.  nigelbullers.zenfolio.com/    Not sure which one is best, I do know that people that I personally know have bought prints off of deviantart and they are always happy with the quality and the shipping.  But I think both sites do a quality job.

It's about time this got a Daily Deviation.  I kinda figured that it had already had it by how perfect this image is.  Congratulations.  I love your work.  Enough so, that I went to that exact spot to try and create my own version of this.
