Leon Russell - This Masquerade
______________________________________________
Thoughts of leaving disappear every time I see your eyes
No matter how hard I try
To understand the reason that we carry on this way
We're lost in this masquerade

This is stunning and sad all at the same time. 

You captured history. I like the "potion" you used. :thumbsup:

I appreciate that view very much, Ann. I can see the sadness too :heart:
But I hope you don't think they are the twin towers. They were long gone before this photo was taken :(

I must admit I thought they were the towers. Too hasty when I looked. :(

 I still love the feeling this photo evokes. Great shot.     :camera:

Hi, your picture is really amazing. You are a real genious :)
Would you tell me what kind of processing you did on the original pic ?

Thank you very much for liking it :highfive:
If I were a real genius I would be able to tell you exactly what I have done in post-production but I can't because I don't remember precisely. But I did do a lot of playing around with different tools in different photo programs. I think it started out with backing off on the saturation only to later on increase it along with contrast, sharpening, color temp and tone. You name it...whatever tool the program had I used them all until the soup I was cooking was done...or as I sometimes think...over done.

Thank you for your answer. Whatever you did, the result is amazing. It's not a soup that you cooked, it's a magic potion :)

When I first went to your page and saw this particular image, I didn't think much or even look at your gallery... I just clicked the watch button :)
So maybe now would be as good time as any to give it a fav, because it certainly deserves one (and many more from other people of course) :)
I love the colours and that cloud/smoke adds something special to the mood. It's beautiful, really is :love:

Hi Vanja...thank you very much :heart:
:lol: You didn't think much? That's classic...love it :hug:
It is a shot that doesn't grab people at first. Looks like just another Manhattan cityscape but for me its exactly that smoke rising that gave it its "hook" which makes it a bit different. Its one of those images that needs to be seen large. Then the affect of the colors work as a whole giving it an overall moody feel. I am so pleased you "understand" it completely :rose:

Oh I figured or hoped that's what you meant. In English intonational slang "I didn't think much of it" means a whole different thing. Basically it implies "that sucks" :lmao:
