Upper West Side Photo Of The Day: Fantasic HDR Shot Of Columbus Avenue

Thursday, September 1st, 2011


This may look like a painting, but it’s actually a photograph.

Local photographer Michael Huitt (michaelhuittphoto.com) worked a little post-processing HDR magic to produce this surreal image of Columbus Avenue, facing south from W. 73rd.

If you’re not familiar with HDR (high dynamic range) photography, you can read a little bit about it here (there are some fantastic — non-UWS — examples on that page as well).

Click here for a full-size version of the photo above — it’s kind of awesome to view it in full detail (you may have to click on the resulting image to zoom in, depending on your browser settings).
