MY COMMENTS:
My creative process involves experimenting in Photoshop until the image reaches a beautiful and striking color harmony by using no more than 2-3 main colorsóblack always being the basic color of my work. Also, the work includes composition study, photo retouching and also use of filters to obtain maximum quality for bigger prints (see details images). I've spent a few years developing this style, even though it seems simple.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Any comments would be appreciated but what I'm wondering is if you think this would be interesting material for (serious) art galleries. This is where I'm aiming at. Thanks!

I think this approach could work, but with one caveat... you had better have some outstanding design in the original photography.

For example, in this picture, your eye drives straight along that dark black people mover rail into the background... the line is so strong and so powerfully designed my eye didn't veer from it in any way - the rest of your piece was ignored. So all the work on the left half of the picture isn't used at all. My eye never crossed from the right half of your work to the other.

The color is so overwhelming that for me it isn't enjoyable to linger on anything - but that is me and probably not the rest of the world!

Could this work in a gallery setting? Heck, I don't really know - it would depend on the gallery and the clientele.
