[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A picture of the Garrison church in Old Portsmouth that has been heavily Post Processed.
There is a face in the sky looking down on the scene. A cannon stands guard over the roofless church.
The picture has a nice eerie feel, just right for Halloween.
The picture has been posterised, solarised, sharpened and a frame added.
For a bit of fun see the workshop.

Hi Michael
Un très joli travail, très bon PP

I like your pp work on this composition very much. It produces an eerie look and creates a very interesting and odd lighting effect. Well done.
