Great shots! Was it hard to learn Affinity Photo?
Thanks!

I hardly ever do anything outside capture one. Since I never really used Photoshop much, there was no real "unlearning" to do. I find Affinity useful for cloning and healing, where the brush in C1 is no precise enough.

There are lots of YouTube videos on using various aspects of Affinity photo. For me, buying Affinity was a no-brainer. I rarely use a pixel editor, so a low one-off payment made sense.

Very nice Stanley great light - I'd like to see a version where you reduced the contrast and increased exposure in the darker regions of rocks and greens grass hedging for me the main subject is the lovely rotunda against the subtle values of sky and water.
Thank you for your comment…when I evaluated the scene, my visualization for the final image was the contrast that appears on these pages…I’m just not talented enough to alter that thought…what I’m trying to say is that is what I saw and I attempt to create a final image replicating that moment

Not a new composition, but you can't photograph the same skyline twice, as the saying goes. I was trying the new Hasselblad XCD 25/2.5V lens to see if it could replace the Leica S24/3.5 as favorite if-you're-going-to take-one-lens item. Seems like it.

X2D, XCD 25/2.5 @ f/8. XPan crop. Flat light. Green lawn.

Cool! I don't think you've shown Central Park and the (silly matchstick) buildings beyond from this perspective before. Also nothing to complain about in terms of the XCD25V's performance - seems like a keeper to me!

Thanks for showing us what the lens can do:)

Yes, the lens performed well. I agree with you about the matchstick buildings. Hope that they can survive the storms to come.
