Wordless Wednesday - August 20, 2008

Before and After



My daughter Dee took this photo on her first trip to Scotland three years ago (at least I think it was three years ago). The copies I have of those pictures are compressed but are good enough for display on the web. I play with them in PSP to this day. On this edit, I cloned out the power line and the time stamp before brightening and pulling out the contrast in the photo. The process removed the color cast, which I think lent a sort of old world tone to the building but I was pleased enough with the results to save this one as is. At least for the time being!

Visit Wordless Wednesday to find out what it's all about and to see a listing of all of today's participants.

Nice work. Looks like you gave the building a "virtual sandblasting." :-D

The power of photo editing tools, and of knowing how to use them!

Great job.

Makes me want to go visit Europe again (it doesn't take much really). I LOVE looking at all the buildings. Good job on the picture too. Looks much better without the line. ;-)

I saw that first picture and was like..."HEY! I've been there!"

Didn't realize I was the one who took the darn picture! : )

Love what you did with the photo.
