Project 52 – Entry #25

Back to Kensington Market for today’s post. I love graffiti don’t you. I love the artistry, the bold colors and in this case the fact that it fits the character of the neighbourhood. The store right next to this alley way was a….yup you guessed it….a fish market.

This was 3 bracketed exposures tonemapped in Photomatix. I then used the new Topaz Adjust 5 plugin. applying the Spicify filter in the new Vibrant Collection. Topaz Labs just released the new upgrade yesterday. The new Adjust 5 is a free upgrade for current Adjust owners.

    Nice colour effects Edith; vibrant in fact. You must have used quite a wide angle lens for this shot as it appears you were up close for this one. I know they call it graffiti and its art, but really it is something more than graffiti in my mind. You have such a wide range of subjects to choose from where you live; today I was out taking pictures of a waterfall.

  3. I love the colors and textures on this photo, it’s as if I am standing in front of the wall and looking at the actual graffiti and not just a photo of it.

  7. I really like the gritty yet vibrant look you have achieved here. Not sure if it is you POV or the original artist but there appears to be quite a #D look to the mural. Nice shot.
