In this case, I took a color photo of the Former Jewish Hospital up on Central Park West about 104th Street as  I remember , which has now been turned into luxury condos-- very posh-- with an elegant courtyard and a fountain and Lamborghinis parked near it.

I tried to re-imagine it as an old sepia photo of the Hospital as it might have been when it was fairly new. This meant getting rid of anything in the photo that would distract from the impression that it came from an earlier  time. The whiting out around the hospital happened naturally because of the position of sun, but there is a modern tall condo building directly behind the Hospital which I eliminated, as well as modern  street signs of various kinds.

Oh, here is a shot from a different angle of the Hospital now-

Photography in a Different Light- More Impressionist technique

Another example of going for an impressionist/oil painting look is this photo of Central Park way up at about 100th Street and Central Park West...

Photography in a different light- Blurring instead of sharpness.

As a member of a photo club ( Park West camera club of Manhattan) I am learning more and more what conventional ideas of "what makes a good photograph" are, and getting feedback on my efforts.

I have been experimenting for some time with creating images that go against the grain and am showing some here.

For instance, the current vogue is to have images as sharp and clear as possible. I wondered what it would be like if you tried to blur an image and use Photoshop to pull it together-- did this for an online Photo contest where they wanted photos based on the theme "Red" - a shot taken in Upper Central Park near the Pond  (on some maps called the Loch). Fog and rain...inspired by French Impressionists..
