It is hard to believe, but I took the free raw photo in 2010. I was still shooting with my old and trusted Canon XT (350D).
It’s been a long tradition for me, before leaving New Your and take a 650km drive to Montreal, to stop at Hamilton Park in New Jersey. So I could take a few pictures of the magnificent skyline.
I believe it will be an interesting challenge to edit the featured photo. I took it in July during typical New York summer. It was hot and humid with the prominent haze in the air. Everything looked washed out with no contrast. It will take some effort to bring the image to life.
Plus, you will be amazed by how much noise digital sensors produced in 2010.
Anyway, good luck with the editing.
My RAW Editing Version
And here is my editing version of the free RAW image. You can access all my editing steps from the Snapshot Panel of the Develop module in Lightroom.
What About Copyright?
All free raw images I share, I took myself, and they belong to me. They are not sourced from the public. But they are still copyrighted.
You are free to edit my RAW photos. And if you want to share them on your blog or social media, go for it; all I am asking is to credit me with the link to my site. And you can not use them commercially.
