Graveyard photo

Visiting my sister in Spain and came upon this really old graveyard, in Blanes on the Costa Brava, with the most beautiful monuments. It was near dusk and I just used my little canon digital 5 meg pix, but thought this would be a fun photo to play with. Enjoy.

Interesting photo...

I seldom apply just one effect to an image, but on this one I stopped after using Levels to open up the shadows and using Andromedia Etchtone applied with the default settings.

Hi Nanls,

I duplicated the Layer and flipped it. I then used a mask to reveal part of the bottom Layer and so create a mirror image.

Finally I used the Lighting filter to add a bit of colour and modeling.

Hope you like the result.

Regards

Con

How about a flowing, melting(?) look?

Graveyard

Well I worked on this photo with Studio Artist. I'm in the beginning of a long learning curve with this program.

High contrast and glowing edges filter for a bronze look.
