Newbie Parisian Cathedral

Here's a shot I didn't think was very good. I took it on an overcast day in Paris in 2009. Then I remembered some of what I have learned here and so I offer this photo to see what great artwork ya'all will create using it. I am enclosing the original as it came out of the camera.

I used several things that I cannot recall right now.

Re: Parisian Cathedral

Here's a "Noir" look using Topaz Adjust and Simplify along with layer blending modes. The sky replacement came from my own stock photo collection.

I'll try something cheery next!

Re: Parisian Cathedral

Nice pic Gunner. I used a bit of Topaz and Fractalius. Thanks for the play.

Re: Parisian Cathedral

Fractalius is always cool. Looks even more haunted! Still working on my "cheery" version (installing some older plug-ins).

Re: Parisian Cathedral

Neat renditions all. I like topaz but have never played around with "Clean", yet.

Re: Parisian Cathedral

The Topaz bundle offers so many different image correction and creative options amongst its 9 plug-ins, especially when combined together. You can almost get away with not having many other plug-ins if you have it.

Re: Parisian Cathedral

Inverted look based on a Photoshop action then further fine tuned.

Thanks for the picture, Gunner
