Dusk in Central Park
It was a coincidence that this morning I was working on this image shot at dusk in Central Park in 1993 when I read Mark Hobson's blog The Landscapist. I was trying to decide how dark to print the image and I had made several small prints. I kept wondering, Am I making this too dark? Do I need to widen the tonal range? But when I played with the curve, the print lost the peaceful feeling of approaching evening. Mark makes a good point that all landscapes aren't adaptable to a full tonal range.
