I Could Dream

By chase
One of the rooms in the ruins of the old Hall Alison & I urbexed at the weekend.Just one window so everything was pretty dark in there with some nice big holes in the floorboards.
I had to make use of that pretty light.
I like the 'dream' look to this.
Added lots of noise & tweaked in Photoshop.

Thanks for taking the time to look/comment.

Hi Janet

What a super image, really outstanding.

I have added a mod to bring a little more light on the face and dress. This was done by duplicating the layer and changing to the blend to screen. Lowered the opacity to about 65% and then added a layer mask with a gradient toolcoming down from top right to darken the outside light directional.

Hope you like it....

Thanks all.

Thank you for taking the time to do a mod Robert,it's difficult to judge how much light/darkness an image needs to convey the mood.Everyone sees something different or something they would like to change I guess.

Lol Ian.......she'll get ya for that !! PM duly sent in the hope that I can save a couple of innocent blokes from a fate worse than death ! Wink

She does have a big stick that she uses from time to time,especially when bargaining for some odd item or two at a car boot sale,I have the bruises to prove it !
