Photohunters: Street Art and Flash

Gattina's Photohunt theme this week was Graffiti/street art and Sandy's Photohunt theme was flash. I'm going with the street art option in combination with the flash theme, although this is actually sidewalk art.
The un-doctored shot above looks to me like flash photography although the sun was the flash. I played with it below to reduce some of the sun's flash.
As you walk along on this sidewalk you pass by eggplant, corn and other vegetable graphics in a flash. The eggplant has a flash effect from the sun which looks like an exclamation mark.

Great combo of both themes. I think sidewalk art qualifies as street art :) Looks good anyway!

If it is out in the street, it is street art. Love your take on the theme, and the flash experiments :)
Happy weekend, Carver!

the artists are really creative and talented. i wonder how they can make street art appear like 3d.

I agree, sidewalk art is street art though not as common to see it on the sidewalk. Love that eggplant!

Have a good weekend and keep cool.

Love to see the street art in PH this week. I finally saw one stunning piece created by a well-known USA artist in Singapore.

I like how the sun made the flash effect, especially on the eggplant.

My flash is here

Cool choices of pics -- and yeah, that sun's mark really does look like an exclamation mark! :)

I know that challenge - natural light is wonderful for photography but too much . . . sigh!

Have a good weekend.

Incredible art is your working with your software to 'cut down the glare'.
