Chinatown art – 20 years in the making

Here's a pic I took of Chinatown NY about 20 years ago, along with a current Google Street View, as well as a few artistic treatments of it I made today using PostworkShop (working on my 2014 calendar). I went with the golden-colored one for the calendar, which is a composite of a few different treatments using layer blending modes, erasing, etc.

NICE!

It is so very interesting how things have changes, yet not. I'm not sure I like all the modernization going on here; but hey, who am I to say anything.
