Subject: [Leica] Central Park on a Lark

With apologies to Charles Ives for mangling the name of one of his 
works for the subject line.

I decided I hadn't had enough of the big city as I headed home from 
New Jersey after Thanksgiving, so I headed for Lincoln Center rather 
than home after I crossed the George Washington Bridge.  After a cup 
of coffee and finished with the Times, I headed for Central Park and 
points beyond for a walk and some photography.  Here are three of the 
pictures from that walk.  All were taken with an M7 and a 28mm 
Elmarit on BW400CN.

Central Park.  This gigantic "rock" is actually a piece of the ledge 
that makes all those tall buildings in Manhattan possible.  Only a 
bit of perspective correction, levels and cropping done.

Lincoln Center.  Again just some perspective correction, levels and 
cropping done.  The Shadow/Highlight command that I used to pull the 
blacks up a bit also brought up some grain, unfortunately, but I 
still like the result.

Shooting and chimping.  One quick shutter click and everyone moved 
into really un-photogenic positions.  No second chance.

Comments encouraged as always.
