52 in 2014 Challenge: #22: So Far Away (Can you guess where it is?)

May 30, 2014

So I’m trying to keep up with the 52 in 365 challenge (I know I have to have 26 posts by the end of June), and I’m thinking a shot from an airplane would make a good capture for “So Far Away”.  This was a business trip, and I was limited to shooting with my iPhone.  There was a lot of haze and bright sun, and the windows on the plane have a polarizing filter on them. I had a few with an ok composition, but overall lousy lighting and color. Time to get creative!  Since it was an aerial shot, I thought I would go for a vintage aerial reconnaissance look and have some fun (and go for “far away” in both space and time).  This was done in onOne Perfect Suite 8, Elements, and LR.  I converted to B&W in onOne (using Ansel in the Valley), tweaked that slightly, added a texture, then brought it into PSE to add the text.  I then softened it a bit by lowering the clarity in LR.

Can you tell me where it is?

    That’s so cool! That would be New York City with Riker’s Island, La Guardia Airport, and Shea Stadium marked.

        Well, I could think of only two island prisons and knew it wasn’t Alcatraz. My husband took a look and thought maybe NYC. I compared your shot to Google Maps and voila!
