City Lights

Both of these by timobalk at SXC

and thought they might be a challenge as they are of night time, quite often you see photo's made to be night-time but not many of night-time to be made into art work ?

any way have fun

( oh and there is two as i couldn't make my mind up which to choose, so still indecisive in 2011 )

Re: City Lights

Great pictures Palms - You must have been doing a lot of surfing to find these and the Pedal Pushers, hope you are not snowed in? Here's the first one with a watercolor using Vitaly's Piker Watercolor technique.

Re: City Lights

Nice one, Skip. With someone else using that Tut, I'll have to really work harder at getting good results. <Smile>

Thanks for the Pics, Palms. Between thes and the bikes, I should manage to stay out of trouble for a bit. <Smile>

Re: City Lights

Thanks for the play Palms. Excellent result Skip. Mine was an adventure that ended up with the neon deep night watercolor.

Re: City Lights

Just trying to figure out what I did for my last effort. More involved then I would like, but think I have the formula now. Like the name I concocted too (Neon Deep Night Watercolor). lol

Re: City Lights

All nice, but both Skip's & Lyle's #2 really stand out for me.

Here's mine - yet another Vitaly watercolour. It handled the night scene quite well I thought.
