New York sim is not just an Urban place, it is a mix of residential and commercial place, that have a small sample of the RL city with same name. It has Soho's houses, Apartments, stylish shops like on 5th avenue. They even have a website, check it out for more info about this sim lifestyle.
It is a really nice place to take shots, since it allow rezz objects and run scripts.
Choose a dark Windlights, because the local lights are really amazing.
I keep testing the Tone Mapping and SSAO tools from Niran's viewer. I used some blur and liquidify on this pictures, but I didn't edited the color filters at all.If you doubt an raw shot can be like this, check out my sl feeds, were direct pictures from sl are posted.
When you activate the tone mapping, all windlights get messed up, so I might create an separate download for windlights with the default numbers of tone mapping, exposure and more.
I mess with them too, editing it like I would do in PS.
Now, lets talk about my favorite event in the whole SL, the Vintage Fair. The 3 sims will be open to public on august 4th. So, until there you can have more info at Chic Management or see some previews at Chic Style Guide, were I'm proudly an official Vintage Fair Blogger, you can see other VF preview made by me here.
