Here it is all on the screen at once.
Thanks, Jim. I don't have a good view of the mural here, but I do have it from the front in color. Here is a glimpse of it in color:
I really should do some serious shots of it.
I am interested in how this looks in color. Does the mural on the right stand out more???
I can't figure that out, Tom.

I like the heat generated by this. It's got that urban, summertime, graphic, hard, contrasty thing going on that expresses well so much of a city landscape. It's cool the way the mural seems to blend in with the rest of the experience. It would be interesting to see this in color though I like the approach you took to the black and white . . . bold and expressive. I do wish that some of the more sunlit areas hadn't gotten quite so blown out. The way you've handled this seems to want a little more detail maintained, or at least the suggestion of it, in some spots. Overall, however, I think it's a kind of visualization worth pursuing and an accomplishment of personalizing your viewpoint.
Thanks, Fred. Although my intention here was to use B&W with rather extreme post-processing, I can see what you are getting at. Maybe I will try it again along the lines of what you are suggesting!
