emmmm... sepia.

but you, imo, overcooked the sky - that dramatic look of it does not go together with the street's look. I presume you're usinf Silver Efex - use the brush to tone that sky darkness down.

I like the sepia.

Seeing the color image is perturbing, only because seeing the neon billboard on such old architecture bothers me.


just a few of my thoughts...

I like the way details are pulled out with the sepia. The clouds and buildings just seem more interesting to me. It looks as if you did some sharping to the sepia image.

More likely textures pulled out.

Do you use photoshop? try placing the sepia version on a layer above the color version. Change the blend mode of the sepia layer to "Luminosity". You might like that look.

I would show you what that looks like but you don't have image editing OK turned on.
