  1. I like the vintage look! Now, this one is not HDR, or is it? What made you decide against it?

    • No it’s not an HDR, for a change😊 truth is, I was going with fastest shutter speed trying to capture the drops of rain (HDR is definitely not for that). Considering its an old neighborhood I decided to go with the vintage look 😊

  2. This neighborhood looks so much like many of the ones I’ve seen in Buffalo NY and throughout central MI. Very different from New England.

  8. Love love this image – so well done. Its moodiness is very London-eque. Where was it taken?

    • Is that not a proper word? I looked it up and it’s valid 😊 As you can see I’m very committed to improving my English. Lol

  10. I enjoy this change of “technique” Bashar… Vintage look gave it a bit of “nostalgia” πŸ˜‰
