    yeah, blury buidlings are weird.... good weird tho! Makes it look 3D

    Water has a nice crisp look to it, goes well against the buildings in the background

    exactly what i was going after...good eye! i kept messing with this because it looked bland as it was. tried different tools and ran across the blur tool. Amanda has me experimenting with ps now and when i started to blur the city, the bridge popped out. looks a bit unreal but i like it.

    I had a feeling there was some PS involved, and it does look a tiny bit unreal. But i like it and i think it works well!

    Its great the way PS can breathe some new life into a photograph you might not of thought much of at first

    How come you're coming up with a pic from NYC???
    Isn't DC your domain?

    This PS-treated image leaves me unsure of it... which is good, for it makes me look at it longer! Do I like the effect you chose or don't I? This debate adds to the picture, rather than takes from it, so in the end I like it (yet again, what else have I ever said about any JonMikal photo... apart from just ONE so far!?!?!?)

    Good compositon, like the way the bridge frames the city.

    For me it gives a real retro look that I like. Good job. I would try a little fading around the edges to enhance the vintage look.

    This is totally awesome!
    I love the conversion to B&W! That goes great with this kind of picture.

    I think I would have cropped about a 1/4 of an inch off the bottom, but other than that I love the blur you put on the buildings! :)

    Great job as usual! :thumbup:
