Hi all,

Went out this afternoon to take a few more shots of the graffitti. Tonight have been playing around with Paintshop Pro (for the first time, so please forgive the slight clumsiness of the final result!). Am really pleased with myself that I found out how to get rid of bits in the frame that I didn't want... although I can see there's an awfully long way to go.

V1 = final presentation
V2 = straight from camera
V3 = in context

Thanks for all c and c's on previous graffitti uploads. Your time to view and share suggestions and modifications is always appreciated.
Thanks for taking a look.

Nice set but looks like the boards will be pulled down once the building works is over

V1 is good processing, though I'd go for just a bit darker. Good to get rid of distractions, grass etc, but I'd be inclined to keep the artists' tag. Might play with a Mod later...

you did good, the only way to understand these programs is by trial and error.

Fab mod Tony. Thanks Smile
Thanks to Glynnis, Moira and Kevin too. I realise I should've kept the artist's tag in the frame as soon as Lynne commented - ah well, you live and learn.
And yes Glynnis, the boards will come down when the new houses are finished - they're going to be a big improvement on the run-down maisonettes and flats that were there originally.

Spot on, Rachel, both the photographic approach and the sentiment.

Endless possibilities for treatment, so each to his/her taste.

Reminds me of one on the local college years ago, "Dyslexics against the Nitzi's".
Good manipulation.
