Re: Irish cafe

I thought this would be a straightforward pic to work on, but I ended up doing quite a bit of tweaking and getting rid of that rainbow cast (it wasn't taken on a phone camera by any chance?).

Nice pic, Nasturtium, and fun to work on. Cheers!

Thanks! I like your crosshatch strokes

Not a phone but my point & shoot. The color cast really has me scratching my head. It was in the morning across from a river and it was a partially cloud day as I recall. If you want some more practice getting rid of nasty castes I have some concert pictures taken in a nightmare colored orange room. j/k



Lyle - what a sweet illustration
palms - a very 'British' rendition. Alas it was too early for it to be open
OlBaldy - you're welcome. How did you get the cool plaster-y texture on the walls?

I started with a sharpened fake HDR to bring out some details then on a new combined all layer... Used Redfield++ Bas-Relief (27,-27) 00 smooth & Radius... 100 Contrast, 94 intensity (Eliminated white, increased contrast on lowered opacity Luminosity layer).. Then another combined layer and used Redfield Fractalius (One or more of the Sketch Presets) Eliminated white, increased contrast and lowered opacity on either a darken, lighten or luminosity layer..... I FORGET what mode.. I was experimenting a lot... sorry!.... Hope this helps
