Streets of Jerusalem Old City 3


A street in the Jewish Quarter.  The streets in this quarter are in general not so busy, as you can see. This street is also broad enough for a car, although I believe it will take a lot of maneuvering to turn the car around.

Joli sol pavé. Je préfère tes photos sans traitement.
Louis: Je vous remercie, Martine. Je n'effectue pas de traitement, trop souvent.
your treatment of this magnificent image could place it into the 19th century...
you did good Louis....petersmile
Louis: Thank you, peter. For the treatment, I added a little gamma.
A great timeless treatment Louis!
Louis: Je vous remercie, m'sieu Richard.

Nicely done Louis, a fine stark image
Louis: Thank you Chris, glad you like it.
Let's just hope it's a one-way street, Louis, and those who manage to drive there know where they're going! It does have a different feel from the other streets I've see thus far.
Louis: The streets in the Jewish Quarter is much more, what a Westerner would be used to. Flanked by normal sized businesses. The street and walls are tiled with limestone and scarcely leaves a place for weeds to grow. It reminded me of walking in a hotel/resort kind of place. Oh, and it is not a one-way, since a car will not fit into the little tunnel up ahead. I saw a car coming in, delivered something, do a multi-point turn and came back the same way. I guess that surprises are bound to happen in this way.

Early in the morning? A wonderful treatment!
Louis: The shot was taken at 13:32 on a cloudy day. It rained earlier and the street is still wet. Thank you Philine.
It could be just your picture Louis, but the stone used here looks very hard.
Louis: During the time here in Jerusalem, I slipped twice on wet limestone paving (it is everywhere) and I didn't make a dent in it. From experience I can say the stones are hard.

What a great view this is and I love your treatment. I know for sure I don't want to drive her with my car...
Louis: You see very few cars, bicycles, etc in the old city. Not even signs or anything that helps with regulating traffic. So, I haven't seen how they sort it out when cars in opposite directions, meet in a street like this. People live on the foot here.
Great treatment Louis. One of your finest!
Louis: Thank you Sir Bill.
The superb perspective piece with the addition of the stark treatment is remarkable.
Louis: Thank you Mary. I did try to put emphasis on the figure up ahead.
Very good image in all respects Louis. (Thanks for your lengthy explanation last week about Jewish headgear, I found it very interesting.)
Louis: Thank you Brian. Interesting to know that the Jews disagrees about a lot of stuff, among themselves.
Nice treatment, Louis.
Louis: Thank you Frank
This treatment produces a very nice effect, the fellow looks like one of those distinctive Orthodox Jews.
Louis: Thank you Martin. He is most probably an Orthodox Jew
