Old and New

By gwynn56  
couldn't but help notice these 2 buildings at the junction of Hunslet road and Hunslet lane , over in Leeds , I like the architecture of both as they not just square or oblong boxes , though built in 2 different eras they both got curves to them and seem to have layers , notice the windows of the older building how they are staggered , the fancy ornate brickwork , I liked how they have done the window recesses on the older one too , glad they saved this building and not demolished it ,as it would be a shame to loose such a nice old building ,if I can I'll upload another of the older building showing it in more detail on another day
oh dear seems I cropped the top of the new building off ,glad it wasn't the old one I had cropped Smile

Well spotted Gwynn, the architecture sure is interesting on the older building. Pity you chopped off the top of the new building...Grin

For once a new building trying to blend in with the old.
The new one does have lovely curves but the old one somehow wins
for style.

Well seen and shot, Gwynn. I like red brick buildings a lot. The new one also looks good to me even with the cut of the tip .

Nice find but try and take the buildings individually .Its said that you should try and stick to odd numbers as the eye will not settle on even numbers.
Try to correct your verticals ,select all ,file ,edit ,transform,prospective .
Go to View,Show and tick grid

Drag corners till you have the main edge of building in line with a grid line
accept crop.
return to view,show and take off grid.

Thats that sorted.

If you look at the buildings you will see a halo around them.
This is due to over sharpening. Go back to original and see if its there.
Sharpen only when necessary and then as with all adjustments a little at a time.
You can get around it if you have to by zooming right in and cloning the halo line out with a single pixel brush(BUT you should try and get it sharp in first place)

Anyway i`ve gone on a bitGrin,hopefully this will help....It`s Photoshop instruction however very same in other applications.
All best
