Mercury on Grand Central Station in Black and White

Mercury on Grand Central Station in B&W


This shot is one from a whirlwind tour of NYC last October. We had a long layover at JFK before heading out to Spain for a Mediterranean cruise so we hired a limo for a few hours and took in some of the sights.

This is a shot that I finally got around to processing. It was interesting enough in color but it screamed more for the tonal treatment of black and white. I pulled it into Silver Efex Pro and achieved something that screams “look at me!”

The clock face contains Tiffany glass. The statues were designed by Jules-Felix Coutan and depict Mercury, Minerva, and Hercules.
