Wickwar High Street on a stormy day


Wickwar, England.  22" x 15".

A view up the High Street in Wickwar, a village close to where I live.  This sort of picture makes for an easy composition, with similar height buildings either side of the road, and a disappearing column of parked cars going into the distance, leading you in.  Maybe those two guys on the right are stumbling towards Wickwar Social Club which sells the cheapest pint of beer in the area!  The sky had a couple of stages - first a light wash, then second, after drying, I went in with some darker clouds, blending with the background buildings.  That blending was aided by some dabbing with a paper towel.
