    Mountains of the Moon...If that guy's hair was black I would swear he was Jerry!
  3. Love the first five. Not a fan of the modifications to the last two, but that's just my preference. Too far out for me.
  4. Larry, Anthony,

    I appreciate your looking. Antony, just having a little fun with those last two ..... I realize it's not for everyone, but I really appreciate your input and thoughts.

    Awesome take on Sta. Monica

    Been there, and your images capture what you feel when you really peel back the glossy finish of those beaches. May I ask what you used to create those effects. Is it something like Photomatix or a filter, or do you do it by hand in PS or the like....?
  6. great, bob
    just like Part 1

    always fantastic images to share with us

  8. Greg, Alvin,

    Appreciate your looking and kind comments ..... thank you.


    Thank you for your nice comments ....... the illustrated look is from a filter called LucisArt. The rest of the look was done in CS3 or Paint Shop Pro XI.

    Thanks again for looking ...... really appreciated.

    I am not normally a fan of "heavy" post processing, but yours always pique my interest. I really like these, and have enjoyed your others (diner, Santa Monica police on the boardwalk, etc.)
  12. Fred, I reaslly appreciate your feedback. I know my style is not for everyone, so I appreciate you taking the time to look and write.
