Door refurb

By ChrisOs
One or two ePZ members said they would like to see a more straight version of this door, so here it is. The effect I put on yesterday's version was a Photoshop plug-in from Flaming Pear called Melancholytron. This version today is more or less straight, just duped the background layer and set it to Multiply @ 50%. I shot this in jpeg rather than RAW because I hadn't got my head round RAW back in 2007 when I took this shot.
I would be pleased to hear what you think, how it compares with the other version, etc.
Thanks for looking.

Spotted this shot yesterday and to be honest didn't like the effect. I do like this though.

I do think that this shot is better but saying that I did like the one yesterday, I suppose its down to personal choice as always. Smile

I like this very much. The multiply layer really does wonders on some images.

I think it's an improvement; more luminous; beautiful image!

I think I prefer this to the original - I also like the more defined detail in the second mod, though perhaps not quite so much as has been given? It's a beautiful door, whatever treatment is used, I think - it's a case of letting it speak for itself?

Nah, nothing in it Chris, I think the excellent composition makes the image, and the tweaking with shady corners (sorry I mean vignetting) doesn't make it any better or worse. I still do think the plant growing up the right hand side really balances the picture, it's got lovely colour too. Both are excellent. Tone
