A Gray and Misty Day Downtown

Chris Lord

New York, United States

Artist's Description

Looking over the East River at downtown Manhattan on a gray and foggy evening. New York, New York, USA

Another Canon 5D MKII capture from the gray day on the Brooklyn waterfront shoot. In Photoshop I copied the top half and flipped vertically then reduced it’s height finally placing it over the bottom part where the water is. I copied the water to a black & white file and upped the contrast before saving it and using it as a displacement map for the flipped layer. I copied the water again and layered it over the flipped layer and reduced transparency. Next I upped saturation slightly on the buildings and used Topaz Star Efex to create the glow on the lights. Finally I added a gray texture file to add to the misty effect.
