I'm not sure which forum to post this in... is it Archetectural, or Close-up? Must be "Other". I went on a 3-hour walking tour of back alleys and the like in Windsor Ontario last night. It was hosted by Windsor Camera Outfitters. Kudos to them for this excellent (free) opportunity. Many urban shots look better in B/W, but the colours in this were so strong, I had to do it in colour.

Thanks, Bob. I really had a lot of fun prowling around the darker alleys of Windsor. I'll post more shots later.

i like the colors alright.. but idunno.. for me as your title implies, its the textures that make this shot.. i might try a mono conversion of this and see if you can bring out those textures a bit..

have enjoyed shots from this shoot tom!

I was sort of planning a mono version anyway, so here goes. I tried several different tweaks, and ended up filtering the Cyan in my conversion. Then I overlaid a light emboss layer of the mono conversion to emphasize the "textures".

Thanks for the incentive.
