Postcard of Coney Island

Coney Island
I met up with a photography club of a friend of mine during my trip to the east coast in October. We went to Coney Island, in New York. I had never been before and loved using the opportunity to capture it with my iPhone. I will admit that I was the only one there with an iPhone in a tripod holder and it caught lots of attention from the club members and the  visitors to the park. Actually I enjoy it when people stare at me in amazement because it gives me the opportunity to share my passion with them. Usually I invite those staring to come over and take a look. I will show them what this little device has captured and most of the time they are very impressed. I will say that I have even convinced a few of them to purchase the iPhone for themselves.

When capturing this image I was using the ProHDR app. If you look closely at the swinging ride in the distance you can see some ghosting of the riders. As I processed this image I wanted to give it an vintage feel.  So I used the Vintage effect in PhotoStudio with others and blended them with the original in Iris. As always I resharpened my image in PerfectPhoto after I apply effects to keep the image sharp and not fuzzy.

For fun I chose to mirror the original.

Same image with simply a mirroring effect found in Photo Studio.
