Village Cigars in New York City

This is an edit of a pic i took back in 2009 that i posted to FB both in 2009 and 2011 when i did this edit after getting my hands on photomatix software
I always liked the cartoon feel to this - and out of curiosity i did a search online for images of this corner shop in NYC to see what other people had done with theirs and came across this

I thought oh someone else has done a similar image but then i noticed the little ball of rubbish next to the A in soda and realised this is my image in use - i've never experienced this before - someone using my pic on-line !!

I've had a mental day today and was unable for one reason or another to take any photo's today let alone a red one but remembered this image as i've used at as my cover photo on FB recently so decided to 'cheat' and post it as my shot for the day
LOVE the colors and your processing just really brings them to life!

And that is soooo cool that your photo was used!

@tosee Thanks Tom and I will do it looks like they've used a whole load of images in it I found it in google images and clicked on it thinking it would take me to mine on either FB or most likely Flickr as its been on there 3 years since I opened my account I suppose this is what happens when you post online and why so many people watermark their images

It is awesome Sarah! I am so sorry that happened. You need to watermark? fav!
