Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City, Queens offers an impressive NYC cityscape view of Midtown Manhattan. My original concept for this photo was an HDR urban sunset or a regular long exposure photo, but I really wanted to try out Jimmy Mcintyre Cityscape Photoshop tutorial…
I have been looking through my different travel archives, but really did not have a good cityscape that was worthy of this type of post-processing technique. The tutorial is very straightforward and very easy to follow. I completed the above edit in about 15 minutes. Definitely, check out Jimmy Mcintyre website ThroughStrangeLenses.com, he has some great tutorials.
Technical Information: ISO 100, 18mm, F13 and 31.0 sec.
Post-processing information: Lightroom 5 Adjustments and Photoshop CS6
