New York City Avenues

Maybe this picture also could be called "Daily Chaos in NYC"... It very well reflects my opinion about this city: One is just overwhelmed by impressions emanating from signs, advertisements, cars, people, smells, sounds and colors - No wonder I was exhausted when getting back to my hotel in the evening and, all in all, the trip to NYC certainly was not for relaxation.

Post processing took pretty long for this image, since I was unhappy with the results for quite some time. In the end, I chose a slight amount of tone mapping to get more details out of the image and some sepia toning for making the streets look more friendly and inviting than they really are...

A tag that is assigned to the image currently visible is shown with a  blue background . Tags will be grayed out if none of the currently selected images have that tag assigned. Tags with a serif font designate an image gallery, i.e. images that are related to each other because they were e.g. taken during the same trip.

I like that you didn't blur it as extremely :) Somehow this picture always makes me think "information overflow"...
