OK well this is the last in this series, and my last picture for a while from Sigulda.

This one is put together from two different pictures. First I used the "Polygonal lasso tool" to select just the castle, then in the select menu on the top picked "Invert selection". Then did a gradient map and took black and white for the rest. Then I cut the sky from a version of the same shot where I had used curves to make a very interesting sky. So again using the "Polygonal lasso tool" I "cut out" the sky from the colour changed version and copy, pasted it to this version. (Of course from first and after every major change I do the usual (Levels/brightsness&contrast/*Maybe*shadow&highlight) ;)

And there you have it.

A beautiful place I have have tried to explore for you. Hoping you get to see it for yourself and take pictures sometime... :)

Best wishes to all friends and those now becoming friends, and those who will be friends on here. :) ;)

Well probably your original one is already wonderful... so why all the pp work? The front image looks great but the sky doesn't realy go together with it. But that's my opinion...

Bonjour Francis
Ce paysage semble tout fait imaginaire, rve ou cauchemar ?
