Looking to New York

New York Skyline [enhanced]

This was my revisit to a photo I took over four years ago. I’m no Brian Auer when it comes to processing photos, but I think it looks much better than the original:

I’d love to hear your opinion! You can comment here or at Flickr.

I’m new at actually processing photos (as opposed to just uploading the original), so I’d appreciate all the help I can get. I’m currently using Paint.NET – because price is a factor – but I’m willing to switch to GIMP.

  1. LOL — It does look much better than the original. It’s pretty amazing what a little increase in contrast and saturation can do. Most of my photos straight out of the camera have that kind-of dull haze over it. It’s funny, you don’t really notice it until you’ve processed the image.

    Keep it up. You ought to try the GIMP. From what I understand, it’s quite capable and very similar to Photoshop.
