Yaelle, I also tried it with even less saturation and liked that as well. I then took that result and tried a cyano type conversion which had potential (I liked the soft greens) then went back to the colour and in the process inadvertently pick up some split toning that I had used in another image (not sure how that happened but ...). It looked as if it had potential as well. Lots of opportunity to go exploring with this. I see from the original you did some removal as well.

Feel free to post. Yes - a quick & dirty but that man in the white shirt kept catching my eye and I wasn't happy with him being there. Also, I don't know if you noticed but I've just replied to Frank's comment..

In the original there's a subtle little juxtaposition that appeals too my (warped?) mind. The building is Number 2 (it's faintly visible above the door) and there are 2 reflections - subtle but it makes me smile.

I like the original more. It's shouting loud colours with subtle and subdued reflected figures almost requiring the viewer to find them, in a composition that's stable with all right angles but with some kind of dynamic energy because nothing is centred. It's one of those that shout look at me, then follow up with little tidbits to discover and enjoy.

You are a very useful person to have around I never really understand why something works - only that it does (or does for me) This image has a sibling which I'm saving for Saturday - I look forward to hearing your analysis if you're about.

I was offering pseudo-scientific analysis on a piece of art To be honest it just works for me and I do not know why. Usually the more I analyse the less appealing the object becomes.

On the subject of Saturday posting, have you noticed that the Saturday thread survives for very little time whilst the Sunday one keeps living for the whole week?
