We went to Coleton Fishacre yesterday at Kingswear, a former summer retreat of Richard D'Oyly Carte, founder of the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company. When we got home my Digital Photo mag had arrived, with instructions for this technique. Well, I couldn't resist Wink. So here's an image of this lovely house, and the original full colour version is up as V2 (sorry, very chocolate box, but just so pretty!).

Thanks for all your C&C on Dartington Hall Gardens, very much appreciated Smile. And thank you for stopping today.

The original is a beauty but I really like the technique you have used for V1.

V2, lovely/charming

V1-- very clever wor, but I find it distracting----It is a masterpiece of photoshop work, however!

A very effective piece of work Theresa.
And more effective with the folds in the ''print''.
Excellent work.
Mick.

Think I agree Jenn, lol! It's not really very easy on the eye, is it? But it was fun to do!

Chocolate box is good. I never tire of these lovely garden scenes.
You did a fine job of the PS, it's always good to try new techniques. I can see some interesting applications for it.
I'm old fashioned, so today I'll take v2.

Thanks Chris - it is a great technique.... for the design boys, people in marketing and so on. For me it was just a bit of fun - the instructions were there and I just had to try it out Wink. But it's not exactly the sort of thing you'd want to hang on your wall, lol!

Been trying to do the chocolate box thing for a long time, more examples like V2 could propel me nearer. V1 is one of those wonderful techniques (rather well executed) that has me wondering how to do that in a darkroom.

Lol! It would have me wondering why you'd want to do it!! It is really a rather pointless exercise, with little to do with photography, but it filled a half hour or so while the dinner was cooking yesterday GrinGrin

Ah well, even if it were good enough, I wouldn't be allowed to cos it's a National Trust property and they have rules about stuff like that Sad.
