My stay here in New York, like every thursday as usual and like to go out with my wife occasionally take one afternoon if the weather favors us, we like to walk through the streets, many amazing places to go for some reason this is the city that never sleep.
Henry Cartier Bresson, a photographer who I like too much his work,definitely shaped me as a photographer, he did some amazing pictures with his trusty Leica, capture at the right time to give a great story to each of his photographs.
This past summer, I dared to climb to the top of NY, Empire State building, was an incredible experience, because I'm afraid of heights but the adrenaline rushed to my head so as we climbed the lift and reach the 86th floor with my hands was wet by nerves, but it was worth it,I had an incredible view of the city and waited for the evening to see how it illuminated the buildings.
I have a passion for street photography, but in this publication have selected some sites of interest, some buildings and the Bridge Blooklyn, most PP are used in LR4 and the Nik Software's Silver Efex Pro 2 this fascinating program it's easy to make creating fine-art monochrome of digital images.
Most of my shots are in RAW but I have some details on the process, problem is when I export to JPG,so the resulting photo lose quality and the colors are not as strong, so again use Photoshop to give it extra PP my jpg files. However, with this plug-in for lover of black and white, like me, quite possibly use too many of the effects in Silver Efex Pro can be duplicated with layer masks, curves and blending modes
There are three main sliders for brightness, contrast and structure. The structure slider gives an effect similar to the clarity adjustment that is found in Adobe Raw. The two sliders here for brightness and contrast use those new features, both features analyse the tonal qualities of the picture and adjust their settings according to the results. Here I share some images used with this program.
