The Gates by JesIdres The Gates by JesIdres
Last weekend I got to view the Gates in New York- it ended up with several sketches and half a dozen good photographs. After playing around with my favorite with my tablet and photoshop filters, I made this background.

I don't care what anyone says about them- I adored the project. I don't think that many people have ever walked through Central Park- EVER. And I think even the most hardened New Yorker had to admit when the wind blew through on a clear day, you had to pause and watch. Don't lie, I saw you.

Canon Elph mk2, Photoshop, Wacom Tablet.

I first heard bout this project a few days ago. I can't imagine how breathtaking it actually was, but of the photos I saw, I was amazed. If I had the chance to see something like that for myself, I would have!
I like the shot that you used, but i'm not to crazy about the effects.

I preferred the wrapping of the Reichstag, but this was still a decent piece of work.

I'm so glad that you like this project - I watched it as a news om our TV here, because its author - Christo (I hope I'm spelling his name in the right way, but I'm not sure) is Bulgarian. As I know he's born here, in Bulgaria, where I live, and from years he lives and works in US.
I think every big city looks too gray in winter and moreover when there is no snow, so I think that that orange, which flutters on the wind, is really interesting and beautidul! :D I'm sending you a big hug across the ocean! :hug:
