One World Trade Center is now complete and it’s so beautiful. I desperately want to get back to NYC to see it. This was taken in 2011, standing near the Statue of Liberty.
The original was hazy. I increased the contrast and clarity and reduced the noise. I used a graduated filter over the buildings to warm them up a touch. Here’s the original:

Nice post 🙂
With cityscapes increasing contrast and clarity is the way to go. With Lightroom CC also simply pushing the dehazing slider also works well.
Last time I was in NCY was two years ago, I was at the new tower and the memorial and is so beautiful, although remembrance of 9/11 was heavy on the heart. I had a special relationship with the Twin Towers since I was a teenager and exchange student in the US. My host dad was a sheet metal worker who helped build the towers. I remember how proud he was when he took me there and showed me everything. And his brother in law who worked in the towers on 9/11 lost his mind when running out of the buildings.
Although the Twin Towers will be always missing from this amazing skyline the new tower is a worthy substitution.
I wish you and your family a loving and peaceful Thanksgiving!
Thank you. I just subscribed to CC the other day and I haven’t opened Lightroom CC yet. I need to do that!
