There is an alley in Ann Arbor, Michigan which is noted for its graffiti. I was wandering around town recently and decided to see if there was anything new to be found. To my surprise, there was this bike just laying on the ground but it had been painted to fit with the surroundings.

For processing, I decided to use Topaz Adjust and Topaz Simplify to strengthen the colors and make the image look more like a painting.

    I guess some would argue its a bit overdone with regard to saturation, however, that is an artistic choice and for me it works here. I can see from your other work you use this look carefully and only when it makes sense. To me that is key! Lovely image.
