Before and After

This is the sign at the entrance to San Diego's Little Italy. On a cloudy day. Not very interesting.




I've always thought it looked a bit old-fashioned and wondered what it would look like if I gave it a vintage look.  I think I like it... though the effect may be better if I didn't have modern cars in the background.  ;-)

  2. I wonder if it is too yellow. I'll have to go out there when the sky is blue - it's a cool shot then too.

  4. I wonder if you could go there early in the morning if you'd have a better chance at getting zero cars in the photo. You're right...a vintage effect really works for that photo.

  5. It's beautiful in vintage! I too was going to suggest maybe an early morning shot without cars, if possible.
