I truly admire your creative impulses Billy; this is a great "streetscape" in part because of the general composition, and also because of the processing tricks. As for how your comment at my site got kicked to the top, I don't know why that happens either. It just randomly does once in a while. Tonight you won the prize.

BB you didn't murder this at all, in fact you gave it life! I love selective coloring when it is done properly as it is here. Great one. BTW thanks for your encouraging words as well.

Great one Billy! Naw! you didn't murder this one! In fact its like everybody says! The blue jeans really draw the eye right in! It's quite terrific - especially the Photo Impact lighting - Really awesome in fact I might say!
Don't miss my Halloween Graphic on the 31st - coming to a theatre near you! It's also courtesy of Photo Impact help. I'm pretty low on time right now! In fact I should be in bed cos I have somebody coming in to fix something in the morning and my flat is like a middin'

Great capture, Billy. Perfect selective coloring of those jeans. The way the people are is almost like they are actors posing for the shot, which makes this extra special.
