Free RAW Photo: Manhattan Skyline

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 to stop at Hamilton Park in New Jersey before leaving New York and taking a 650 km drive to Montreal so I could take a few pictures of the magnificent skyline.

Editing the featured photo will be an interesting challenge. I took it in July during a typical New York summer. It was hot and humid, with a prominent haze in the air. Everything looked washed out and without 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.
