Post-Processing: cropped to reduce the skyline
cloned a distraction
levels to reduce darker colours
resized
sharpened
      Extra Info: part of the many "painted houses" of ........
in the late seventies housing boom the top row of houses was sold off from workers residence to private ownership. due to the front of the house on the opposite side was in a road very narrow and so the estate agent photographs showed the backs but were all dark brick. the first one to be sold was not distinguished from the others and so was painted dark blue. all the other ones were similary done and now in the area that over looks the water must be of pastel colours. s photography changed the rules for the better

    Aoc. The whole area is more interesting but loses details and other distractions. Will post that on outtake.
Thanks for the votes as I was one of the photographers involved

    Interesting history of the colours and how one photo has changed the whole neighbourhood for the better. I dislike the crop at the top and suggest a simple pp of graduated blue sky would have been a better solution. Otherwise a very attractive pastel, in my tt for sure.

    A bit oversharpened? In my favorites.

    Lots going on here although shows the pastel colours well. To me it takes on a sketch like appearance and one of my favourites

    The pastel elements are rather overwhelmed by all the architectural detail, and there is no real center of visual interest.

    Just a little bit of straightening would help, but it does have a cheerful effect. Should do well.

    Perfect. I expected to see a shot like this and I am not disappointed. Beautifully done.
