I've been experimenting with this shot. I'm not satisfied with the results and would like some comments from the ePz members. -=Walter

Sorry can't help you Walter, I love this.
The whole effect works well in my opinion.
Great manipulation, hope you finally get to like it!

I cannot see anything wrong with it....Gives me the impression of the transition from rich to poor

i really like this, especially the use of selective colouring and the grainy effect in the foreground

The only thing I can say is that the girl with the umbrella might need some further attention and manipulation. Good work.

Walter, I like this, the only suggestion I would have is that the area under the arch is a little too bold, perhaps selectively colour that area two. I really like the other areas of colour such as the window boxes on the right, and the umbrella. The contrast in the B&W is excellent too. Well done.

I think it is very successful. You have captured an almost seedy feeling going out into warm sunshine. The light at the end of the tunnel.

I think this is a superb piece of work ..... I love these selective colour shots of yours ... they are beautiful. I do agree however that a little softening and maybe a little lifting of the shadows of the archway might enhance this a little more .... but only a subtle ammount I feel would be needed! Excellently done! Click*

I too like this photo. Very clever idea going from B&W into colour with the return to the hustle and bustle of the main street. Nice shot.

lovely piece of work...if anything, you could experiment with a lifting the girl with the unbrella and/or clone out the mmotorbikes

Hi Walter,
Received a message from Ben, thought about you and immediately went to your PF where
several photos attracted my attention.
This one is the third.
Click.

PS
I've read your appeal to the EPZ members, and I'm so sorry I'm not the one to help you with that :-(
