Has much resemblance with a painting of an old Dutch master, Rob.
Just wonderful!

Good job. I think it would have more of an old world painterly look if you cropped a little from the right and cloned out the street lamps.

Hi thanks for your comments on De Rotte was not worried about the street lights got caught up in getting the light effect I wanted but you are right should have paid more attention to detail and cloned out the street lights but theres always the rework and the light well maybe, but if some wants to give it a shot.

The reason why the sunsets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

Rob - The antique, old school look is successfully accomplished here. If the slight banding and blue on the right could be muted, and the street lamps cloned out, it would make the photo outstanding. Thad

Fantastic result you got in this work, Rob! It remainds the painting style of some old masters, very well done!

I was totally confused. I had this one in the VB and gave it high marks. Then I saw Twinkels post and thought she had reworked one of hers that she deleted. Glad I found this original so I could tell you how much I like it.
It is really a masterpiece.

Rob, It amazes me when I see a glorious photo like this with a C-Index of 50. This is a solid 8 in the VB, but what are ya gonna do? I see from the comments above that there are some very talented photographers who agree that this one is a beauty. When you look at the C-Index and the individual votes, don't you just want to talk to the morons that awarded a 1 or 2 and ask them what they were looking at?

I'm not afraid of dying. I just don't want to be there when it happens.
