LOL... thank you so much Max ;-) Something went horribly I guess, lol. This was last spring, looks even worse now!

Thank you David! Every once in a while, I look back through my old files and find a gem to work on. Glad you like!

Isn't it fun to revisit old files and find out that now you know how to make a "potentially" good image a great image? Good work, Christine. #8140332

David Pratt 11/20/2009 6:40:39 PM

Great image of this city scene. The angle, I like the journalistic approach you used with this. #8148973

Robert S. Grauer 11/20/2009 6:49:19 PM

Great shot Christine, great use of space. One of my favorites of yours, well done. #8148987

M.Christine Duncan 11/21/2009 5:54:04 PM

Thank you Teresa :-) It's wonderful to hear from ya!

Thanks Debbie... I went back and really accentuated the tilt which I wasn't able to to when I first took the shot, and used the clarify filter to really make the brickwork pop a little, the light had been very flat that day. Suddenly just those few changes made a huge difference to me.

Dave, thanks! Once in a while it's nice to break out of the norm and revisit something a little different. I think I might wander the downtown with the cam again, I feel inspired, lol.

Thank you so much Bob. That means a lot! I consider you as a photog mentor you realize. #8151428
