Domfront (French Medieval town)

Here's another picture for you guys to play with...
I took it in the medieval quarter of Domfront (Normandy - France).
Have fun

Nice image of brickwork, thanks. I went with a vector transformation. The only element I changed was the sky. I replaced three sky elements with one of made from a fractal.

AHB version for me. I don't like it that much but it will do for now

Another nice photo, Sylvia.

I went with an Impressionist filter version.

Re: Domfront (French Medieval town)

What a neat shot. Do you travel much? You bring such beautiful sites.

Always wanted to try to turn day into night. I forgot where the tut came from, probably DPReview. Anyway, after fussing for so long I thought it looked too dull, so, ran it through PS filters (hardly ever use them anymore) and this was the result. Let's see, I think it was paint daubs and poster edges. Seemed to make the brickwork pop, though looking at it the starry sky got all blurry. C'est la vie.

Re: Domfront (French Medieval town)

I did a pretty good job at turning this picture into a night shot, Veralisa

To answer your question, yes, I do travel quite a bit. For one, I go every summer to France, to visit my family (what a good excuse for going there ).

And in winter, my husband and I spend the cold months in Asia (usually Thailand and Indonesia, but this year we'll do Thailand - we usually spend 3 months there -, India and China - his son leaves in China now, so we do have to go there too ).

Now I need to find a place to live in South of France or anywhere warm

Sylvia 1065 I really like how you handled the shadow in the middle

I'm thinking Filter Forge should come with a warning "This Product could be Habit Forming"

Nasturtium,

When part of my image is too dark, I usually lasso it with a high feather (around 30), duplicate it (Ctrl J / Cmd J), and change the blending mode to screen. Then I adjust the opacity of the top layer and merge. Easy fix

Re: Domfront (French Medieval town)

Cool! How would you mask the sky? I wanted to make it dark blue but kept getting that white line...
