Fotos On The Fly - Village Views...Scarsdale NY

This is the "new suburbia".  Buyers are shunning the enclaves of the exurbs and outer suburbs in favor of town life.  They now want to walk to the train, stop by the dry cleaner, and pick up an evening meal or enjoy dinner out - all without using their car to get there.  

I took this photo in 2008 on a hot summer day.  I decided to spruce it up with a painted effect on photoshop. It shows off the charm of the village of Scarsdale and is right at the center of everything.

Hi William - It was a nice photo - emphasis on "nice".   But it needed something more. If I had taken that photo today - I probably would have tried HDR.  But I can't go back in time!  So I went with a "fresco effect" on Photoshop and played with it until I liked the overall effect.  I tried several other filters but they didn't really do much.  So thanks. I spent quite a bit of time on this edit.

Hi Jonathan -  Thank you... a couple of people have been trying to convince me to do something like this.
