Certainly catches the eye Pete ..... nicely put together and good to see the original components. The texture overlay works well and gives a nice painterly look to the sky. Just thinking it perhaps needs another element .... maybe some birds wheeling away in the sky just to finish it off?

Yep, it works well Pete. Havent done one for years, I use to enjoy montages following the tutorials in magazines, it was a fantastic way to learn Photoshop.

Love this Pete,what a fab building.
Mr U has a valid point...birds...a full Moon maybe ?
Only teeny bits I'm not sure about are the lines across the bg texture,just perhaps a wee bit too much ( nit picking here ).
Well done for straightening up that building though & I love the colour palette.

Absolutely stunning Pete. Taking in to consideration i know that building well, this is a super piece of processing. Hope it does not come true though i split my wellies !!

Dave has a point. Some crows or ravens flying overhead might just bring this to another level.

I still have to get my act together and start working with layers and textures. Someone please increase the hours in the day to 36.

Nice one Pete.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone.

lol I put three in before i uploaded this and they didn't look right so left them out...thing is the only birds I have in flight are pigeons and they looked stupid. Right - action point - I must shoot some crows.

Quote:Only teeny bits I'm not sure about are the lines across the bg texture

Absolutely right...I was being lazy :-( I'm going to redo that texture without the lines as they don't always work.

Very cleverly done. I wouldn't know how to begin to construct an image like this. The effect is amazing.
