Swampy -- you're probably right about the sky. I didn't like the original one, but the replacement is too bland/soft to fit with the image. Skies are ONE of those things that I have to "work on".

Okay, I found a sky that I liked and I worked it a bit -- does this help complete the image, or compete with, or just not fit?

YES!! C.J. It really does lend itself to the overall look of the piece. I've seen skys with those colors in the desert.

A leetle bit of Xero LineArt. A leetle bit of Painter: Blender and Cloner. A leetle bit of Impressionist.

Cheers
Dave

Unique Duv, the colours are wonderful. That little bit of impressionist adds a nice touch overall.

Swampy, your aged photo is so realistic, my first thought was omigosh, this would be a tough restoration!
CJ, your second effort was worth the wait. Very powerful piece.
Dave,a "leetle" bit of this and that, and you've got a painting.
JC, great sepia.
I've been trying for a Polaroid emulsion transfer effect. Here's my latest attempt.

Cj

CJ I really liked your rendering. The brilliant colors and the lines were appealing to me. In the background of your work between the buildings the background is horizontal and almost like a straight line. Making it more irregular may have improved it some.

My submission is more somber. A low Key sepia. Formed by using the channel Mixer adjustment layer, The HSB adjustment Layer, and on top of that a 50% gray layer in overlay blend mode. To the gray I added noise.
