Thanks to all 4 entrants this week - a bit disappointing there weren't more, I thought it'd be a good opportunity for everyone to get out and about with their camera! Anyway my thoughts are as follows:
teekay - Graffiti vs. Art
Loved the vibrant 70s colours on this and the fact that it's a real street view - would have been really good if we could have seen a 'gritty' character sat on the bench at the bus stop.
rpolitsr - skateboard track graffiti
What I loved about this picture is that it showed real graffiti in the community - people actually living their daily lives around it, accepting it, just what I wanted to see.
marie - Temple Bar, Dublin
Loved the colours, loved the people, loved the general ambiance - wasn't too keen on the vertical distortion, it bothered me which is a shame.
mrshobden - Village Hall Wall aka Graffiti Canvas
I loved the title on this one...Graffiti Canvas is what I had in mind when I set this week's challenge. Not sure about the processing you've chosen but that's a personal thing.
And so the winners are.....
Thanks again to everyone who joined in this week and take it away, rpolitsr!
