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.

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.
