St Nicks

St Nicholas Church.

I tried turning it in to a sketch and this is what I came up with.

Any hints tips I would be very grateful, cheers.

Re: St Nicks

That action is great, I have used it on lots of pics with great results.

Is there a site available where you can download other actions like this?

Thanks again..

Re: St Nicks

First off, the sketch showed a lot of your hard work. Kudos to you.

Second, please do not post links to pictures. Please post directly into this site. Links disappear over time as people change out their files. That leaves us with useless posts and comments here at RTP. In effect, it makes this post nil and void. We would like to be able to enjoy your work into the future.

Thanks for sharing the sketch action. It is very generous of you to do so. I thought this presented a fun challenge and decided to post my results here along with everyone else. Thanks for the play.

Janet

Re: St Nicks

For my try, I kept the sky and lightened one side and darkened the other.

Bazn8a: I suspect you could find many actions somewhere on this site -- I personally have not found the right search parameters to show me where actions are. I was going to ask how to find them by posting a new thread, but maybe this reply will get the answer.

Janet: I assume you were thanking me for the action. (I didn't see any other actions posted in this thread.) And you are quite welcome. But everyone, please be aware that I DID NOT CREATE THE SKETCH ACTION. I merely downloaded it when it was pointed to in another thread, and attached my downloaded zip file in reply to Bazna8a's original post. As best as I can tell, the action was created by Swampy, and modified by Palms1 -- they deserve all of the credit. Thank you, Swampy and Palms1 -- I hope you do not mind my sharing it with others.

Re: St Nicks

Eureka! I found where I originally got the sketch action from. You can find it here:
http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...bined-tut.html
That thread will also provide a little of the background as to who all was involved in the action's development.
