Ready to go!

You better be good at hill starts if you live in San Francisco! I presume it’s slightly easier with an automatic transmission rather than manual?

Highly processed image via multiple tools in the GIMP until I came up with an effect I liked – multiple layers, b/w, gaussian blur, layer modes and more.
I had to rotate the image at first and reconstruct parts of the image, but I think it came out reasonably well!

    Looks very good! I like the result of these effects. It’s a good perspective as well.

    John – that’s a good idea. The original isn’t that different in fact. Some other shots I’ve taken in the past have been dramaticaly different, but I’ll bite and post the original overlayed on the processed on later!
