City Daily Photo Theme Day: People on the street


March's City Daily Photo Theme Day is People on the streetI snapped a photo looking down from the first floor of a building through a window that was slightly casting reflections- my resulting photo certainly didn't look the best.

I thought I would try adding what I call a "water colour" effect, as I have enjoyed seeing a lot of those in artwork lately, both some Mancunian examples (such as Bill Usher) and here. Plus further afield, such as at Artfinder and the likes of Darren Thomson

When I cropped out the red traffic light (which was too distracting) the purples and pinks balanced the shot and it all seemed to work a little better.

  9. I really like the water color effect here. It looks like a painting and I sort of like the anonymous look that the people are blurred.
