79th Street Boat Basin

72nd Street Boat Basin

This is the  79th Street Boat Basin on the Hudson River, looking south from Riverside Park on an unusually warm January evening. two-and-a-half years ago. This was taken just after golden hour in blue hour, and the images came out of the camera with a heavy blue color cast.  When I I first published an image from that scene, I kept the color cast uncorrected and called it “All Most Blue.”

In this image I corrected the white balance and color cast, to better capture the true balance between the overall blue tones, and the yellow/orange highlights from the remnants of the sunset.

I think the Hudson will always be my favorite of NYC’s waterways/

  1. Beautiful light and perspective Mark.

  2. I really like this one, Mark. Wonder how that bike on the lower right boat is used on the Hudson. 🙂 The strong leading line from the right corner and dark mass at lower left are powerful anchors for the shot.
