Newbie Italian Portal

I took this in 2008 in Sienna, Italy. Not a very good photo technologically-wise (is that even a word?) But you all are experts at turning around this kind of stuff, so here is my first play on it.

Ahh, you colored outside of the lines! I have always wanted to use that old line. Now I have got it out of my system-permanently.

Re: Italian Portal

I traveled to Italy also... the beauty there was so intense, no? No one could ever take a bad shot there. As your original capture shows, even doors are objects of art!

For whatever reason popped into my head, I decided to do a nightime rendition.

Re: Italian Portal

Nice photo Gunner - Just went with a muted color pencil to soften the colors a bit.
