Another of the Opera House in Valencia.
Originally shot in colour but I've got a bit of a thing for digital Lith at the moment and I felt that the graphic shapes of this image suited this style very well indeed.
I tweaked to contrast of this image a little to bring out more details in the deepest shadows before doing the Lith conversion. I do this with a pair of curves adjustment layers and a channel mixer layer to fine tune the contrast. Finally I add a little grain and use a blend if adjustment in the layer properties to ensure its blending is kept to the mid tones and shadows leaving the extreme highlights nearly grain free.
