Notre Dame, Paris, captial city of France.

The last in my Notre Dame series. I created six versions of this shot, trying different textures, colours and layers, but this was the first one that moved toward a theme or emotion that I wanted.

It feels quite lonely and stripped of hope to me, but I’m sure it will have varied meaning to the individual.

Featured in Cityscapes & City Skylines

8 layers of texture from www.deviantart.com free use stock – Amurrr. Lightened each layer, adjusted hue and colour levels, blended each with 3 layers of the photo, one b&w, one colour and one desaturated. Flattened image and further colour tweaking and adjusting.
