Just Another City by peehs Just Another City by peehs
NYC, from atop the Empire State building, at night = shiny wallpaper :w00t:.

If anyone likes this enough to buy a print, then I'd recommend this version instead (higher resolution print):



(I have 20x20" glossy one on my wall :D)

Sweet, I am going to include it as its own background and also like this. The blue components are all the rainmeter skin whereas the metal and your photo are the desktop background

Indeed... shiny wallpaper. :) I like the shot. Did you remaster it? My pictures ended up being very... yellowish/reddish.

A little; it's mostly about the white-balance parameter: see my response to *PixieDust22, above.

How did you do this? If you don't mind me asking ^_^
Reply
:iconpeehs:
peehs Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2010
Thanks!

Okay, all the technical details:

I shot it with a Nikkor 10.5mm fisheye lens, using a preset white balance. I used DxO optics to de-fisheye the image, tweak the exposure etc, reduce noise and to apply a more balanced, sodium lamp white balance. Then I added a slight blue-cast in Aperture.

A shot with the same processing, but without the blue-cast is this one.

I thought the reduced colour range from the blue cast would make it less distracting as wallpaper, seems to work! :)
