Award Shortlist   


By Taya  
This was taken in Nicosia, Cyprus, near the Northern border. Many of the buildings in Nicosia, remain untouched, as they want to preserve their history and heritage.

I quite like the colours and textures, which were enhanced in PS.

1/80 secs @ f/5.0 hence the soft focus as I forgot to remove my polarizer! ISO 100

All C&C welcomed, please let me know if you think I have over enhanced the colours and textures, as I have the tendency to do that. I love colour and texture!

Thank you,

I agree with you David! I was with one of those tour groups, and didn't get enough time to stop and compose! That's what I hate about group tours!

Jo, thank you for the mod, it is actually a lot better! I'm still learning new things with PS 1. Although, when I did sharpen it via unmask (think it's that one), it didn't really make a difference! I also agree with you on the white filler! Hmmm... really should have done something about that myself in the first place!!!

Thank you

Wonderful textures, great atmosphere. I like the warm colours, too. Really well spotted. I do find the white repair work a bit distracting, but it's still a lovely image.

Jo, lol, you didn't mess it up, you improved it!

Jouko, I totally agree with you, and it's something I do on a daily basis! I'm curious as to what you are thinking about!

And, thank you all for your kind and encouraging comments. I value every one of them, as I never want to stop learning.

Thank you,

Paul, LOL I think I'm ashmed of my PS skills and my eye for detail lol! But the funny thing is, when I tone up details on my music shots, then tend to tone them down, so I get a bit worried! But, Paul, I love your mod too and everybody has issues with my plaster lol!!

Thanks Paul,

The only thing I would say is what mainly others have commented with regard to the keystone and the white of the repair as you may have enhanced this too far in pshop otherwise I like the doors Smile

The soft light makes this look great. I'd also include a little more room at the top.
