    Love this Mieke, thought I recognised the street. You always seem to find an interesting angle.
    What did you manipulate to image with

  • Hi Dharna :) Thank you!
    I did a few things… I might not be able to remember everything, but I definitely did the following: basic editing (slight crop, curves, sharpening), then desaturated everything except the blues/cyans, and then CS6 has an awesome new “filter” called Oil Paint, which I mucked around with until I liked the result! :)

    I recognized the street alright, but I’ve never seen anything like the treatment before, Mieke. Extraordinary! From your visit to Melbourne and SITHOM I guess. I’m furious I missed that. Next time you’re down be sure to contact us again.

  • Ah, don’t beat yourself up too much, Rhoufi – this is actually from my trip to Melbourne at Christmas time :)
    But yes – I promise that if there’s a chance for a coffee/photoshoot next time I’m in Melb, i’ll let you know!!

    And you reckon I’m clever? Sheesh. I’ll leave all that manipulation to you, Mieke, and stick to the easy stuff.

  • =D Fair enough. I’ll leave all that editing to you and stick to the easy stuff!!!!

    Thanks Mieke, much appreciated. On your next trip to Melbourne (Victoria) I, as would many others, like to get together.

  • It’s such a shame you couldn’t make it to this last get-together!! But yes, next time, hopefully we’ll be able to make it happen :)
