@franz: Franz, Thank you so very much!! Odd how some images and processing just work together. This was quite different from what I was used to doing...I tend toward "organizing chaos". Simple is what I am trying more for, though a scene such as this one is difficult in urban locations. Which means, I must travel again! :))

Love this shot and the way you have processed and presented it . . ready for the gallery wall for sure.

@Ronnie 2¢: Wow, Ronnie, thank you!! This was one of those images that required something a bit different from me in processing.

Arnd from Basel, Switzerland

So simple and yet so beautiful! The vignetting is great, and so is the light.

@Arnd: Thanks, Arnd, very much. The scene called "vignette" to me. So I am glad it was successful.

Kala from United States

Gorgeous composition and tones. And I like the vignetting.

@Kala: Thank you, Kala! I appreciate your visit and comment very much. The processing is something a bit different for me.

I really like this one too...Great frame...where do you get your frames (?) if you don't mind me asking ;-)

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks, Denny! I make my own frames through Photoshop, and occasionally in Silver Efex Pro. For this image, I created the frame in Photoshop by increasing the "canvas size", in the menu, Image/Canvas Size. There one chooses whatever one wants in width, height, color. Lately I also have been using Silver Efex Pro (SEP)--see the next image of the heads. SEP has a section for various styles of framing, and once one style is chosen, one moves sliders to adjust to taste. When the SEP image is brought back into Photoshop (as a separate layer), one can then change Mode to allow the background color to show through, and the frame shows up as black, or leave it as is when imported from SEP. For this white one, I wanted to make my image smaller on the screen and have it stand out from the black. Choosing the width takes a bit of time, but offers a lot of variety. One can also add a thin line accent in any color and complication. There are some online sites that sell frames, some others that might be free. The pricier ones are really fine, but the free ones were not ones I could use. Hope that helps. If you have more questions, please ask. I love to explain things--as lon as I remember what I did! :)
