photoblog image Criccieth Chapel Revisited

Criccieth Chapel Revisited

I posted the original image of this chapel on 14th.January, 2008 which looked like this  http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Criccieth_Chapel_/

I have now used the Topaz plug-in to make some changes to the colours and texture of the image. I then used Serif PhotoPlus X2 to make a frame round the image with one of the built in macros and finished off in Elements 7 to give the surround a texture.

On Monday I return to the third and final section of my "Monochrome Mania" series of my old pictures from the 70's and 80's.

I like both versions Brian, although I think I prefer this one for it's crispness and brilliance of colours
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pamela, it has made quite a change hasn't it.

You've made it look as if it's in an estate agent's window: for sale at a reasonable price. Keep twiddling Brian: I like the effects
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, back to more serious matters next week when I start the final Mono selection.

A lovely presentation, Brian. Gives it a Toytown appeal to this. Wel lworth the effort with the various bits of software.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, it is nice to be a bit less serious at times I feel.
A really beautiful improvement of the original version Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I think it has lifted the original as well.
