Ford Green Hall

Ford Green HallI looked up "Topaz Detail" on the web and didn't really like the effect on their samples either. It's too much of a distraction here for my tastes. For example, look at the freshly mown grass on the upper right -- the contrast is so high that the lines in the grass just look very unnatural. The contrast in the light/dark panels on the building itself seems too high as well. The overhanging foliage from above only works to draw my attention to this even more.

I think this image would work a lot better for me if you were to move over to the right a bit (so you'd have a little more of a straight-on picture), come out from under the tree some, and go easy on the "topaz detail" effect.
