Holy hell, Kevin! There's so much amazing stuff going on in this one. You're a master of painting with light.

...Master of Light... and the pixie dust...

This is incredible: the buildings, the benches, the trees, the angle, the light. Where is this in LA? And what time is it?

You wouldn't think it was the same place at night.

Petrea said...

Isn't Thomas Kincaid the...oh no, he's the *painter* of light. K can be the master of...wait - K - no, not *that* K. Kevin is the anti-Kincaid.

I enlarged this and wanted to dive in and disappear into it. As a matter of fact, I did.

Ken Mac: downtown, across from Union Station. During the day it's touristy, crowded, fun. I've never seen it at night until now.

This is wonderful. With the streetlight illuminating the tree front, the grandfatherly building in the back, and the light shimmering on the stone walk, my eyes wandering all over the picture.

I agree, K, you paint with light so beautifully. At first, I thought this scene was in Europe. Since I know Olvera St. so well, I'm even more amazed. You really cut through the grimy reality and found the heart of this place. Wow, Kevin. Take a bow for this one.

Absolutely what everyone else said, especially "holy hell." How do you get these?

This capture has very impressive mood for me. The colors looks great.

Really great shot. I hate to ask... but was this HDR by any chance?

Thanks,
