a lazy bright afternoon in the town square

This is the town square in Dresden, Germany. The bright afternoon sun had pretty much blown out the scene, but it still has the look and feel of an old time photograph. I had to shoot at F22 because it was so bright.

I had to change it to a monochrome and adjust the lighting such that it has less contrast for that old time grainy look. Not bad for a blown out photograph.
