Banceuy 1920 vs 2014

This is a little exercise for my GIMP skill. As I wrote here, I intent to make a "me too" attempt of Shawn Clover excellent works, using my hometown as subject matter. Here I choose the Banceuy scene as target. The original shot is nearly impossible to retake today, fortunately we can still have a glimpse of that dome that preserve its signature.

ISO 800 - f/8 - 1/250

The perspective of my shot is not completely match the original. Compare the size of people from each photograph. Maybe I should move a few steps closer into the scene. Never mind, it's good enough for now.

Take a look at the power line. We modern people are crazy enough to hang two pairs of shoes on it.
