Jogging with our iPhones…

Upper East Side, Central Park – Jun 2008 – 067
These pictures were taken on two successive days when I had doctor appointments on the Upper East Side of NYC, and had the chance to walk along Fifth Avenue, and then through Central Park in order to return to my apartment on the Upper West Side, at Broadway & 96th.
I had now reached the west side of the inner roadway that circumnavigates Central Park, and was heading north toward the exit on 96th Street. I was at about 94 Street at this point — looking east, with the reservoir in the background.

Note: this photo was taken 3+ years ago, in the summer of 2008, when my editing and "post-processing" consisted of little more than simple cropping with Apple’s iPhoto program. On Dec 2, 2011 I imported the photo into Apple’s Aperture program, and used its facilities to adjust the hot-spots and cold-spots in the photo. What I was particularly trying to do was lessen the blackness and lack of detail in the black outfit worn by the woman in the left. I also wanted to "sharpen" the detail of the photo, since the combination of their running motion and my own camera-shake made the focus a little "soft." But it’s a JPEG image, so I couldn’t sharpen it at all; and I was only able to achieve a small amount of shadow-lessening in the black outfit. C’est la vie … I still think this is a slight improvement — and it’s also a good reminder of why I now shoot everything in RAW, and spend more time with the details of editing/post-processing…
