Available to buy on…

A very shoddy image taken some years ago. Tonemapped in Photomatix Pro then processed in Photoshop Elements 7 with Topaz Adjust 4 plugin, new sky stitched in and a bit of cloning. Finally cropped and finished in Picasa 3. Done as an excercise in Topaz Adjust.

Original image taken with a Kodak Easyshare CX7530.

Thanks for taking the time to browse my portfolio, I hope you see something you like. Colin.

    It’s lovely John, very like Canaleto’s paintings

  • Really appreciate that Shulie, that was the look I was groping for. Just wish I had an image without the waterbus and motor boats.
