Re: Virtual Ironing

Outstanding photo Janet. Thanks. So many possibilities. Added some clouds, messed with the perspective, then did manipulations trying to make it look like a scale model shot with a shallow DOF. Are you convinced?

Re: Virtual Ironing

Great pic, Janet!

I've been to Eureka Springs but don't remember this building. Of course it was 40 years ago, give or take. And these days I can barely remember what I saw last week.

I did a watercolor/ink job with the "brushstroke bonanza" tute.

Re: Virtual Ironing

Peter: That is a keeper for sure, especially if one is into the whole creepy,
Gothic thing. I'd sure think more than twice about entering this place.

Lonnie: You did great with the color saturation and clarity. I love the clouds. The Gaussian blur in the foreground looks believable; but the blur in the background is a tad overdone. Back it off some and it should look smashing. (This is the pot calling the kettle black here. Just take my $.02 and...)

Dkcoats: Stunning chalk work. You event took time to get rid of the cars in the background. Welcome back to RTP.

Here is my work. I lost the original high res file. So I worked on the same resolution file that was uploaded here. I must admit that I like the higher resolution files better. Oh well. It was fun anyway.

Re: Virtual Ironing

thanks, janet. that embossed look comes from filter forge's built in HDRI environment lighting and height control. when set a certain way, you can emboss just about anything.

and peter, i love that look on the building and the purple sky. very cool

Re: Virtual Ironing

Thanks for the great picture, Janet!
You guys did a great job on it!
Palms, you didn't use AHB on this one, did you? Just curious...
I used my tutorial 5A for this picture.
