    A classic - Coney Island, Brooklyn

    Went out on Saturday afternoon to Coney Island; villagevoice's "Siren Festival" was going on and lots of people were enjoying a great evening.

    Some interesting folks to watch - as always in NYC ...through the eyes of an Austrian...

    Leica is just plain fun for this kind of stuff;
    raw's developed in Aperture.

    Some fun shots there. I particularly like that third shot.

    Peter, I was in NY with my family the same day that you went to coney island. I wish I had gone there too.

    I spent instead the day in the Natural History Museum and your photo and one of "impo" make me think of the nature of what makes us human.

    Hi Guys,
    Lens = 28mm Summicron ASPH.

    Processed in Aperture;
    bluish color overlay
    saturation down
    vibrance up
    highlights down
    fair amount of sharpening
    white balance up to 7k Kelvin or so.

    I would have thought it was an older lens because of the contrast, I used the 25/3.4 canon a lot but the focus separation in this pictures made me think of the old 35 summicron but then some pictures seemed wider than 35(and they look sharp er), I had come to the conclution that you had used more than one lens. I like that the clouds are blown in some.
