Romare Bearden Park Cityscapes

Named after the Charlotte born African-American artist, Romare Bearden Park opened in in Uptown Charlotte  in August of 2013.   The 5.4 acre public park is located between S Church St and S Mint St.  Bearden worked in several types of media including oils, collages and cartoons across multiple styles from avant-garde, abstract expressionism, and social realism.

I approached the park at the end of my late late afternoon stroll through the northeast Uptown district, just as sunset was transitioning into twilight. This series was photographed with my Nikon D750 and Tamron 15-30mm lens, and mefoto tripod. Post processing included initial Lightroom tweaks followed by multiple Photoshop layering workflows using Aurora HDR and Alien Skin Exposure X3.
