The street where we live..... to paraphrase a song from My fair Lady.. cinemascope effect, using a bit of PS 'Curves' feature, but no filters.

Another great graphic by winter-image which's lit up by beautiful
snow-lights...a cold night by warm atmosphere,

Hi Janos
Amazing, I like this one.

salut janos,
ce manipulation est très bien réussi....
j?aime ça

Bom dia Janos,
Refined and well done. This is in short my critical evaluation of the work of you.
This piece is a great example of what I say.

Hello Janos, I like the effect here with the darkened sky and the trees in a kind of white silhouette against it.
Certainly catches the eye as a thumbnail, and well worth a visit.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Janos...nice shot...great tones and colors. Nice work.


Hi Janos
Not a particularly attractive or pleasant photograph, and not something I would particularly take. This could be just a boring, mundane shot of a vehicle driving down a street, but your pp work has rescued it. So well done you for seeing the potential.
I will say that the letterbox aspect ratio (that's what I call it) works well as does the slightly off centre point of view.
Your pp work has lifted the photo and given it drama and interest. This is now a very powerful image worthy of posting on TL.

In my opinion, the post-processing here ruins the image. It;s a fairly uninteresting looking street that is now too tightly cropped and over "cooked", the thin lines like in the branches of the trees and the power lines are testament to this. The halo effect around the top of the houses looks like bad CGI and the oversaturation of oranges looks chemical.
