Looks to be a lonely kind of place, great effects here.

"The old neighborhood
Just ain't the same
Nobody knows just
What became of
Ophelia?
Tell me what went wrong?"

I love the softness and glow. I think I would like a closer look at the person sitting on the sidewalk, though. V

This takes me back to how some of the small towns surrounding Pittsburgh used to look back in the 60s.

E' stupenda!

Beautiful small town. Reminds me of my own hometown when I was growing up.

Somehow this could be everywhere. Like this street shot a lot.

You captured this so well!
This feels like a travel back in time...

I love the way you have composed this...it is awesome. ~V~

I agree with Mairead's observation. This has a desolate and documentary feel at the same time. Very strong. V.

So perfect with her sitting on the sidewalk and the people in the distance. The softness is just right. V

Almost like a dream world of the past...the tones and atmosphere are excellent..

Excellent work. This street scene could be out of Robert Franks 'The Americans'. V

A perfect small town scene ...... looks like it could have been taken 50 years ago (except for the cars, of course). Gives off an aura of a place that is genuine and unassuming. ~V~
