This was taken on Lowe Street in Buchanan, VA (a very small town on the James River). I thought it had everything a small town offers: a church, a live bait shop, a laundrymat, and a bar - not to mention the local "color"). ;-)

PP included crop, several layers of Color Efex Pro (tonal contrast, graduated filter, colorize, etc.) and eraser brush, levels, color sat/balance, dodge/burn, resize, NI, sharpen brush, save for Web.

Nice composition. Slightly overexposed it seems, but for me this highlights the 'burning sun' of midday and is a positive.

I like the wide view. This has that old 50's style of cameral feel to it.

Are the bikers buying hunting gear, or are they doing their laundry?
