Lovely, Filter?
Jide Alakija: Thanks Lyndah, no I just used a reduced the temperature value on my camera's white balance. I think the exact value was 3200K

This is just an interesting shot, it has character to. It has captured a raw aspect of suburban/urban culture in America.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Alex, that's exactly what I was trying to show here, the character of the street life of America.

This is nice Jide.

But, I think the upload has affected the quality, especially around the overhead wires which have a narrow band of white to each side.

You are/were in Philly? Awesome! Its interesting to see how a photographer's style changes when put in a different country. There's still a "Alakija" factor in this, but its refreshing and different. Like the high blue tint, too, brings out the Lebel Pizza place quite nicely.

Very cool capture and processing. Reminds me of a Hopper painting with an interesting twist.
