Well today I thought I would carry on the theme, I thought I would continue doing some editing on my un-loved Rome photos. I started today's photo with a view to trying to give it a retro feel, so I thought I would give cross-processing a try. I didn't was to over do the effect so I have tried to reel it in a bit.

After that I thought a square crop would suit the scene and there we go!! Thank you for looking at my photo, I hope you enjoy it and all comments and critiques are much appreciated.

Cheers,

Matt

Ciao Matt!

Scuza mi, but with a Fiat Uno 2011 and a new LandRover at the background this will be considered Retro after 50 years. I think a generous cropping, (cropping even the left edge at the first window from the left on the right building, at Via Subito) that unfortunately will disappear the bicycle too, would need to be done in order to make it look more Retro, today. Keep it oblong and vertical, you will have the 500cc Fiat to the right, poping out of the frame squeezed in the narrow alleys of the Eternal City. You can also try a black and white version with white frame and rough edges around.

Unless you can disappear the 2 cars at the back. You can talk to some people and ciao cars Smile

Ti amo Roma.

Thank you for your spirited response Pablo, I feel you have taken the title a bit too literally. The 'Retro' title was merely a reference to the Fiat 500 and the 'feel' I was trying to achieve with the cross-processing.

(p.s. if we're getting facts correct, the hatchback in the background is in-fact a pre-2010 Fiat 'Grande Punto' Wink )

But anyway I absolutely loved the city, and love the car

Also thanks wenzu for your comment, you do flatter me lol

Matt

Like it as it is, but would also suggest a crop. Not quite so drastic as above....for me a crop down to where the line below the bricks on the right stops....it really makes the little Fiat stand out and keeps the bike in....which I also like Wink
