I like this one better than the B&W. Give me an historical feel with some color. That's what sepia usually represents to me. The composition here is very nice.

Howard Dion
Great composition. Love the Sepia tone. Of course the guy on the bike gives the image lots of character.

Jean-Philippe Allard
Wonderful picture, but I think there is just a bit too much sepia effect. DOn't know if you ever did a real toning of a sepia picture, but it is very difficult to get a strong effect like this one.

Well hum..... hard choice. I like this one better than the B&W, but the color has it for me hands down. I love the frame within the frame and I love antiques, so all in all you pleased me. What magnificent clouds! And the lines. leading right to the shop. Nice. I missed the guy on the bike! Maybe I need my eyes checked! LOL

CR: A "bulky" picture in a good sense! You have to work your way forward and so you get aquainted to the surrounding shown at the picture. It is consequent you dont use "inviting" colours. I am the first, but surely not the last one especially congratulating to the bicycler! RE

Thank you all for your valuable input. BTW, here's a sharp color version for comparison sake. ^_^

Antiek Hi, I like the picture, it makes me feel at home... I'm from Delft. Anyway, fun fact: the word "Antiek" on the shop means that they sell old stuff: antiques. (And your picture has an "antiek" feel to it.) Other, tiny fun fact: the roadsign means "no entry" and the tiny sign underneath tell us that people riding a bicycle are exempt from this rule, next to sign of course is the ubiquitous cyclist... Regards, Matthijs.

"A Dutch Town," your choice? Would be curious to know which do you prefer. This sepia version, or the black & white , or the original color version? Thanks for your time. ^_^
