McCrary's Tavern on the courthouse square in my hometown of Lawrenceville, Ga. Originally a drug store with soda fountain and doctors office (house call days) reworked into an upscale tavern with roof seating that allows a view of the historic downtown. Speaking of doctoring.. I don't have photoshop so I have to rely totally on what comes off my point and shoot and Photomatix toning.. Not complaining.. just the facts as they now stand.

I like it. Good process- Would like to have a rest on the roof.

Great shot John. The entire process MUST start with a great picture, which this is. I have a photoshop program and I do use it. You do great with out it, but would benefit from having a program of some sort just for refining up the tonality and sharpne

Thanks guys.. @Flip.. agree but the PS would cost more than my camera and tripod combined so cannot justify after 6 months of photo. I think doing without at the moment will force me to concentrate on basics as lighting.. lighting .. lighting. :)

Great shot! I like the design, the colors are natural and attractive ... is a beautiful representation of a classic American urban corner!

Nice shot. For me it's cropped a little too close to the top of the building.

Hey John, as Vietnam veteran you are used to do the job with tools available. Well done.

great, crisp, clean shot!!!

The composition I like the sun reflecting off the glass railing not burn and is behind the chair. The Photoshop CS6 you can download test familiarizing go. There are some free programs that work with layers, such as GIMP or Paint NET.

Thats a great shot, especially without using photoshop, but the best shots come from the photgrapher, my favourite is Don Mcullins work, on B/W film.

Thanks for all the positive feedback.. I got the cheap version of Photo-shop Elements but I am somewhat computer challenged and don't know how to use it. I'll work it out though if I slow down long enough as I stay very busy with this and other interest a
