thanks... nothing special other then getting white balance correct and removing all color casts... a slightly vivid profile in camera helps too.... exposing as far right as i could using the histogram helped keep high iso noise at bay.

very important to learn to use it if your serious about your photography... usually photos that are correct for the scene appear to bright and washed out when visuallay looked at on the lcd.

i find exposing to the right yields the lowest noise and best editing potentia but a histogram is needed to really pull it off well....

The red shirts hurt my eyes.
I like everything else though for the most part

Love the looks of the station but agree with photonoob about the red shirts. Also, the skin tones on the people look somewhat unnatural -- unless, of course, many are sunburned.

It's a nice picture and reasonably sharp. I might have stopped down the lens a bit to improve sharpness. You could have decreased the shutter speed and still make the shot. Photonoob is right about the red shirts.

i had to get as much light in as i could. grand central is tough to shoot as folks are moving and the speed needs to be as fast as possible....

i agree about the shirts ..damn folks should have worn a different color! ha ha ha
