Re: Editing Challenge No. 3

Usually, fog is denser when you look up. So you might find it more effective to invert your 'fog'.

Agree I did try that but the filter affected all the upper part of the image too much. I will double check maybe have to add multiple filters.

Surreal Castle...........................

Only just looked at other interpretations, and see many similar renditions..........

Original photo was nicely taken, and composed. A good tweak would have make a really nice picture.

Many of us have tried to look for something to make it outstanding, and come to roughly the same conclusion.............

I struggled as well lots of failed attempts. Getting a light to shine from a dark/black window is quite a challenge. It still doesn't look right to me but its the best I could achieve given my skill level. Looked at quite a few tutorials but couldn't find one that does this. Lots of examples of doing it from an already lit window but not from an unlit one.

Warmed it up a little




p.s. how do you add an image large than 600x600? The gallery down sized my picture to this size.

Assume you are using albums and viewing the picture you want to post in your gallery. Click on the picture once to view it full size then copy the BB data code shown below it.

Then in your post click on add image and paste this BB data code in the window that opens up. Thats it. The only constraint on the gallery is that the file type must be either a jpg or png and it should be smaller than 500Kb.

You can also use BB data code from another hosting site like say Flickr to achieve the same.

Have a look in the FAQ tab and search picture size for more info.

I liked the idea and wondered if I could do something similar. As you say it is trickier than it looks. One of the hurdles was the white window frames, mullions, and transoms. To be backlit from the room they would need to be much darker. From your manipulation it looks like you have inverted the windows components dark to light and light to dark. I tried this and ended up with blue windows frames that I couldn't do anything with; in the end I just masked the windows and went over it with a clone brush at 50% to turn them into stone which I could then darken. In some of the windows there is a hint of interior objects and it looks like you gave "inverted" the colours of the glass as well as the window components (i.e you did the whole window) as lighter objects in the room have come out darker. Are you willing to give an explantion of what you did as I think I have done well but its still not as good as what you have showed us can be achieved and to get where I did I have used about twenty or so layers in Photoshop Elements to get the masking right for each window. Thanks.
