I'm not a big fan of all the effects, it botches some of your photo's, but other than that, it doesn't look that bad, the weather didn't seem like it was cooperating.

I don't know how Houston feels, but it certainly doesn't look bad on your pictures.

Who could've guessed that Houston was so haunted?

Houston seems like a nice city but I'm not a big fan of the altered images, thanks for sharing.

Nice pics! I love the ad for the "Body Detox Foot Massage"! LOL! Wonder how your body will be rid of "toxins" by a foot rub.

I think Houston is the opposite of your thread:

I think it looks great, but with all the humidity and heat it feels bad.

Nice pictures, but it's true, Houston is a very ugly city.

It doesn't feel good either lol. Not my type of city.

I believe most of the photo "effects" are not really effects, but attempts to create HDR pics with photographs where moving motives were shot in different places.

I've liked Houston seems pretty on these pics, i think. Not THAT pretty, but prettie.

Nice photos. Yes it does look like urban dysfuntion, similar to my limited experience in Houston. Good to see infill though.

I did that on purpose. The tough part is keeping the camera still, which explains some of the angles. But yeah, I use ghosting on purpose to show movement.

Looks bad? I think it doesn't look too bad in these pictures, but then I haven't been there so I don't know.

I like the effects..
