Default Selective Color -- Urban response... :)

This thread has really got me going. Either that, or I'm drinking waaaaay to much.

Here are two more entrys into this challenge. Urban entries, which is only fitting.

First, a shot of the famous Gem Spa, home of New Yorks best Egg Cream. As a side note, I personally taught the new Indian Owners how to make a good egg cream. And I'm NOT humble about this at all...



Second, a mad house shot of the normal chaos of Union Square street vendors...

Good shots, they give a nice feel for what is happening on the street.

Yeah, just what the heck is this stuff anyway? This is Union Square, one of the busiest places on earth. I took this shot from my truck. What the heck are they selling anyway? I never thought of toilet paper, but then again...

I don't care that much for the first shot but I really like the second. That looks like art ribbon. Art ribbon is used in floral displays and numerous other decorative purposes. Typically, it is about three inches wide with embedded wires on the edges to help hold its shape. There are many different patterns available.

Ok, there is a sign that says TIES $6 above those items. There is also a couple of signs for $6 among the items. Maybe there is a connection there. Id say they were mens ties rolled up and what we see is the largest part of the bottom.

Well, one nice thing about the Sigma, is that you can always keep on zoomin in...

It appears that you are correct. This is a 100 percent crop
