Outside of The Art Center

Posted by

While picking up a photograph Wednesday at a closing exhibit at The Art Center, I decided to snap a few shots. I especially like the fog in the trees in Central Park across the way. (The surprised woman asked, "Oh, did I get in your photograph?" To which, I responded, "I surely hope so!") This was processed in LR 3 beta.

NIKON D700 1/250 second F/8.0 ISO 400 66 mm (35mm equiv.)

The woman adds life to the scene, which I like, but my eye tells me this tilts slightly to the left.
