Re: The Arc...

Paris at night is the best. I envy you who can find these scenes on Google. My Google won't do it for me. Maybe I need to pay...

It looks like the street is wet. If that's the case I think some longer headlight reflections would be just the thing to make it more exciting. If not forget I said anythng.

Re: The Arc...

Marie - Thanks for posting your thoughts. Doesn't cost anything. Doesn't work in all cities and towns. You don't see the little orange man?


Drag him to a street and let go!

Re: The Arc...

Thanks, Dalas. Go on Googles maps to Paris, for example, and drag the little orange guy to a street.

Re: The Arc...

Excellent painting Bob! Love the sunset sky with the heavily darkened street level.

Re: The Arc...

Thanks everyone for the great comments. Some times in street view you notice in the upper righthand corner a thumbnail. Click on that and you see a string of user images of that location. These are often much better photos and that's what I used for this painting.
