Newbie Parisian Street Scene

Hey Gang, Here is one for you creative bunch. I did a couple but only could bear to put one up after the original. One thing I have learned is that a lousy photograph can sometime be saved by what we do here. Don't you agree?

First I tweaked the high heavens out of the basic image. then I used topaz Simplify, next went to Nik ColorEfex 3.0 and added some fog effect.

Yes, this is all I have to do on a Friday night. Being 73 has the advantage of having done all that I cared to do. And boy, did I do it, time to rest now.

Re: Parisian Street Scene

Gunner, I have 2 video tutorials on the PST. 101 is basic set up and use, 102 goes into a little more depth with possibilities. See the tutorial link in my sig.

Re: Parisian Street Scene

Paris is always a great subject for photography or paintings.

Made two attempts, but the first one required too much size reduction and did not come out well. Here is my second attempt.
