Re: City Lights

OB, stark, gutsy..as an opening scene of a cops n' robber flick. Of the 2, I like your first one better.
Gunner, I agree w/ Lyle, that texture takes it to another plane.
Peter, night to day, wow. I'd toyed w/ that idea too, but nothing as fabulous as yours.
Palms, deep dark night in a city that never sleeps. Major atmospheric change, looks spooky to me.
Fran, yours appeals so much to me. Almost a monotone, drizzly, relaxing to look at.Alex, yours has so much depth, the buildings seem to have more realism than the original photo.
Gene, I love how your treatment has picked up so many hidden hues!
Al, wow, it startled me at first, then it slowly grabbed me. Amazing.
Joe, I like the major shift in hue from the original. Texture adds excitement as well.
Lyle, I'm simply mad over your creation! I like your second a tad over the first.
Skip, love how you were able to catch so much detail work into the buildings with the pencil sketch version and completely hid them in your watercolor. Not sure which I prefer, perhaps the H20-color.

Thanks again Palms for your image hunt. BTW, at first I thought the large white circle in the right of center was a spot on the lens but in the second shot, it's behind the arched bridge. Could that possibly be the moon?

Mine is an experiment in layer modes gone crazy.
