Honestly, it's as "processed" as I want it to be. I had no interest in making it any less drab than it was in real life. Thank you for all the comments.

Afterthought: I loved that people saw both hope and despair in this image. And some saw both.

And thanks for the fishy!

It might be Pittsburgh, PA, but it could be everywhere. There's love in there.

I hate this image. Came beck to it twice just to make certain that it really is ugly. Of course not, but it must remind me of something/somewhere/someone nasty.

A wise woman.

I had no idea this was a bvy, although I should have known. The as-is style steps aside and lets the viewer wander and wonder. Well done Brian.

Not anything I find visually appealing, but that's just me. I think if the fence was blurred, and the rest was in focus, it would have looked better. But I can get the sense that perhaps, you kept the "pretty" in focus, and let the "ugly" be out of focus.

I like this image...see it as a struggle between nature and urbanisation...

This is a good shot but to compete in these challenges, you need to do some processing to draw out the potential of the image.

Something different and refreshing. Nice use of shallow DoF.
