times square

the raw material for this image was a single landscape exposure. I took an area on the left of the image and an area on the right, and mixed them together

often removing information from an image is part of increasing its impact: here I’ve smoothed out, by using wildly over the top noise reduction, each layer, and then enhanced edges too

the colour edit is based on the original image, but simplified, like the brightnesses

my intention here is impressionistic

also, think cushions
