"Winter's Eve"

"Winter's Eve"
©David A. Ziser

I made this image while in New York City last week. We were just returning from a late dinner as the big storm was on the verge of covering the city with inches of snow. The Empire State Building was revealed itself through the fog, and "winter mix" falling on the city that March evening. The image I saw through my viewfinder exemplified the feeling of winter in the city. It was cold, dark and I was into the very high ISOs. In Lightroom, I changed the "white balance" to "tungsten" which gave even a colder feeling to the scene. I headed into Photoshop to remove the chroma noise from the image, but then added just a touch of noise back to the scene to recapture the grittiness and harshness of the evening. Camera specs: Canon 5D MkII fitted with 24-105mm IS lens, F4.0 @ 1/50 second, ISO 12,600. Enjoy! -David
