I tried to get some colors out of the original without overdoing them. The original shot itself was actuallly very dull and almost looked black and white straight from the camera. I'd really LOVE this shot if it had some proper colors as a basis to play with. (Just to explain why I was so unhappy when I first posted my black and white version)

Indeed, but I still can't get over one coverage report we saw of the oppening ceremony on some European TV, I think it was France 24, where the owner of this website was also part of the discussion team. The bitterness, jealosy and idiotsy of the 'I'm-awsome-architect-for-designing-a-2-stories-house' was remarcable .... no wait, DISGUISTING!

Excuse my poor PS work, but I think there are some colors hidden there!

Another one :

Another suicide? Man jumps to death from 30th floor in JLT

A woman saw the man jump and called the police. Initial investigations do not show foul play
