Friends,

I believe this is my first mono offering.

I hope I've done it justice.

Visited this abbey one afternoon, while having my Fiat serviced!

Not bad but if you darken the sky in PS it would be lots better

Hello Tony,

thanks for your comment. Er... I don't know how to do that. Sad

Frank The easy way to do this would be to put the camera on a tripod and take a couple of shots at different exposures. So for the main building I would have had a slightly longer exposure, this would get more detail into the brickwork and foreground, plus the sky would have blown out, or be close to that. Load it into photoshop and delete the sky, it should be easy to do with the colour wand.

Then take the shot again with a much shorter exposure so you get sky detail, but the building will be very dark.. In photoshop load the other photo onto a layer above you new one, the sky should shine through from the darker image.

Or you could research HDR which is a software way of blending these images with different exposure together.

Strawman,

thank you for that information. It isn't something I've tried before, but I think I understand what you mean.

I don't think CS has a HDR function, but isn't merging 2 or 3 images together, a similar idea?

The idea is similar, but with HDR it lets you map the transition from the brightest to darkest point of the picture, and it adds more detail to the highlights and shadows. I do not think Cs has it, I think CS3 does. I use Photomatix, you can download it as a trial piece of software to see how it goes.
