I look back through some pictures I took a few months ago and found this one that I feel fits well with my recent theme of Graffiti. I had to work pretty hard on this one in PP to eliminate some harsh light that was on the lower part of the wall next to the sidewalk. I am fairly pleased with the results.
I really love planned graffiti like this one. Someone took the time to create a stencil, premeditate were to place it on the wall, center it, level it and spray it on cleanly. I wonder if this one took more then one stencil.
convert to B&W in channels, dodge and burn, clone, crop, and border

Hi Philip, it'll come as no surprise to you that I like this photo. I like your use of perspective, the use of the shadows of the meters, and the great tonal range. I think it conveys the mood of the street very well. Good work in the PP. Best wishes Stephen

I like your picture very much... The B&W is good here for urgan ambience. And the graffiti add some mystery to the scene. Well seen!

nice intro of the new boarder too.
great graffiti, not as much as the golf cart one, but this one is really good too. I think that the graffiti is what it is, b/c of where it is. And you really showed some good stuff here with this one.
it also has some mystery to it with the SUB pointing down to where we can't see.
