CITIGROUP, SAVE US FROM THE NON-RED UMBRELLAS

this is pretty freaking awsome. the grainy wash overlaying the picture amps up the urban setting and gloomy weather. is that a filter?

i love the low shot. you feel totally incased by the rising buildings and the perspective on the rain drops is bang on. all these vertical lines really work to assentuate the depth of the image. also, i dig the way you've treated the buildings- the blurs of red and warmer tones in the lower sections cause the foreground to jump towards us amidst all those blues and greys. the loose brushstrokes also give a great impression of a city scape and this hazy detail dosn't detract from the sharper umbrellas.

lol yes, certainly similar!

I actually got the idea from hearing about it. It's something they do in Spain in tourist areas.

Thanks for the pic =)! Even quite similar colours!
