Photographer's Note

This is a re-post. First of all I'm really sorry for posting this again. Although I received some good comments on the original photo, I was not satisfied with the final presentation. I found the contrast too high and somehow the image reading was unpleasant for me. That can be very subjective so I would not be surprised if someone tells me the other is better than this. After re-working on the photo I realized that posting another b&w version would be worthless so following the suggestion of Lucas Vieira (lucasgalodoido), I opted for some partial desaturation, emphasising the people (which was the main theme of the photo) against the scenery in monotones. Just to make this more valuable and attending the request of John Maenhout (jhm), I posted the original color version in the ws.

Hope you like it.

Here is the original note:

New Yorkers enjoying a cloudy afternoon at Bryant Park.

Because of the park’s geographic location in midtown Manhattan–one block from Times Square–it is a destination for a wide range of people. During lunch hours in warm weather months, the park typically hosts over 5,000 business people, and counts 20,000 visitors by the end of the day.

Among the amenities available to visitors are a French-style carousel, a boule board, chess tables, extensive gardens and seasonal planting displays, the Bryant Park Grill, and free wireless access, as well as 2,000 moveable chairs for pausing to take in the sights.

Bryant Park offers refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city, and provides multiple venues for year-round events and gatherings.
