    It really does ring true, out of 250 somewhat photos that Ive taken in the past week since Ive gotten my camera, theres only been a few that really make me say wow. I dont know why, but this one is one of them. Its VERY lightly edited. Basically just adjusted the brightness and small things like that. It was taken while walking around a neighboring town. C&C please.

    I hope you don't mind, but I had a bit of a go at it. Looks to me that in PP you just increased the brightness, which leaves it a bit washed out and I'd like to see the texture in the door pop out a bit more. Altough maybe you were going for an oldy-style faded look...
    Here's my effort:

    The 'W', state of the flag, and our nation says it all!

    Hmmm... I think I actually prefer the original in terms of appearance. The desaturated look of the flag seems to suit the image. I would like to see it leveled, and perhaps have a go at perspective correction as well. Have you tried either a mono conversion (Sepia?) or a selective colouration with a B&W image and the flag in colour?

    Nice capture!

    Ditto! I like the desaturated look too. It really fits. Two :thumbup: from me. Nice work.

    The saturated look makes it feel a little too fake. I fixed it up a bit more in PS. I also noticed a car reflection which I got rid of. I will work on it a little more eventually but for now, I like this version...

    EDIT : I will attempt to fix the last reflection I see later tonight.

    I think it needs a sharpening pass- just a hair.

    The image is cool. The angle/distortion is a little distracting, but it's still a very cool shot and I would be proud of it.
