I am self-taught in both photography and graphic enhancements…and what a fabulous, intensive journey I’m having!!!
My creative vision goes BEYOND the camera shutter..right into the Digital Dark Room where ART pieces emerge…each one reflecting a piece of my soul.

    Fantastic!! The treatment creates a painted look!!

  • Thanks Rosemary and Barbara. The inside had NO light except from where I was standing. It certainly was a Photoshop challenge!! lol:)

    Yes….the effects you’ve applied work extremely well for this scene.

  • Thank you, Pauline! It would take days to shoot everything of interest in this Ghost Town! If you ever have a chance to see it…it’s worth it!

  • Yayyyyyy! Thank you sooo much for this beautiful award! This image is very special to me! Just had a large print made to be displayed in a local restaurant which is totally decorated in 1800’s era.

    That is wonderful, congratulations Pat!

  • Thanks, Sharon! Now all I have to do is get my “butt” in gear, get off the computer chair and carry through with it! I’m such a procrastinator!

    Great shot. Would love to know the techniques used.

  • Thank you, Linda. It was totally dark inside and I just put the lens directly on the dirty window and shot! Then I used a combination of NikPro3 filters to bring out the colors & topped it off with ‘tonal contrast’. A lot of work went into “cleaning” it up.
