    World's Largest Tampa Postcard...

    Came across an interesting 'postcard' painted on the side of a brick building downtown last night, another example of 'never noticed that before'...had to wrench it into a more realistic perspective via GIMP, clone out a few wires coming down from the building...fun stuff...

    I like your B&W treatment. Looks good on alining the brick frame on three sides - with the Photoshop perspective crop tool you could have gotten the right side also.

    Thanks John, I'm definitely on a monochrome kick with these night shots. As for the perspective, when I had all the edges 5x5 the picture looked too much like a graphic so I backed off a bit (adding inperfections, go figure). Maybe perfect is the way to go, will noodle over it some more...

    Great vision and imagination to 'see' that image Robert.

    Deciding to do it in B & W is inspired. I think 99.99% of us would have 'seen' it in colour.

    Great work! I love it in B&W. I seam to like to have fun lately doing selective coloring so since this has soft colors that aren't to distracting and bold I personally would play around with saturation levels on this one fading out the colors from the lighted area desaturating off into the shadows. Just an idea to toy with.
