my old stomping ground!

did you go in the Hark To Bounty?

I'm from the ribble valley, so just ovedr the hills.

I'm guessing this is HDR?

I'd look to add a little more light smoothing on this - the borders have become a little pronounced and "cartoon" like. try light smoothing at +1 then +2, see if it helps

The 3-d effect appeals to me, and as you mentioned, the stone, the trim, all so picturesque. A beautiful image.

Sorry but you need to pay more attention to your cutting out. You've got a bright cyan halo surrounding your building - unless this is where they make Ready Brek?

This is a lovely shot. Great detail and colours but I'd have to agree with the Ready Brek comment. Still really nice though! Cheers, M

The treatment gives an unreal feel nevertheless it is a powerful image. Well done!

You have managed to get a really dark outline around the buildings Dot that make them stand out. How did you do that? Excellent shot I really love it.

Thanks folks for your comments, I wondered how this would go.
Adrian, its not a HDR, just me playing around in photoshop, the fringing has occurred because I selected the building and did some work in levels and sponging to lighten it and colour up a little, I then inverted the selection and darkened the sky in levels. The fringe is the result of the selection not being too good. Thanks for the tips on how to remove it, I'll try it out. Saw the Hart to Bounty, but we were short on time as we were only there for the day walking the fells
Regards Dot.

I too looked at this lovely piece of work Dot and thought it might be HDR whatever that isSmile but it stands out differently . Like your composition , the detailed brickwork and the touches of red . The sky is just perfect for these buildings xx

Interesting buildings and an unusual treatment.
Sounds complicated what you did, would be interesting to see the original.

When I first saw this I thought it was a watercolor. The black edges do give it a very different look, which is actually quite appealing in a digital art sort of way. Very nice colors, too.

I have read all the above comments because I was curious about the effect you had achieved, and now I am a little wiser I suppose. I still like it a lot but, as someone else has said, would like to see the original.

A lovely place, I wonder if this is a little village church? Looks very nice and tidy, and the result of your playing in ps just gives the image the feeling of a pencil drawing. Like it.
