The High Line is a special place to many New Yorkers. It’s now also a tourist trap for outsiders. I’ve done many photowalks on The High Line, so it gets quite old, fast.
“What a view, and one that isn’t often seen from above.”
That is what was going through my head when I captured the photo on my Nikon D810. I knew ahead of time I wanted a high contrast, simple toned monochrome photograph.
So when I got home and processed it in Lightroom that’s exactly what I did. No special software was needed for this image. It was simply a matter of taking my time with sliders inside of Lightroom and adjusting the tones within the black and white processing.
I am so pleased with how it came out in the end.
