evening light

By jacomes
Another in my little NIK series, this one processed in Colorfex after initial treatment in Photolab3; version is the original iphone image.

I was attracted by the light from the setting sun in the two small arches of the the belfry, and from there aimed for a warmer look slightly painted look. I'm reasonably happy with the result, but grateful for comments.

Once again thanks to all who voted and commented on "Horse portrait" or who just dropped by.

The light through the arches is a very attractive feature, and the lead brings that out, almost in an other-wordly way, suggesting there may be more on the other side than meets the eye. The painterly look works nicely; my only concern would be the halo around the building.

Thanks for your comment . I agree about the halo, I tried cloning it out with no real success and I've no idea when during the processing it appeared!

Nik have some really nice filters that can lift a little bit boring photos to new heights.
I really like the transformation.

Very appealing light captured James, I like the building and the chosen viewpoint...
Good work in both variants, Isabel GrinGrin

Allan (Minty805) sums it up pretty well, I reckon, so I'll say no more as I have nothing to add.Smile

The halo is caused by over processing James, just pushed shadows or highlights a bit too far, or clarity...or all of them.
If you look at the original it is just there, so it is most likely to be chromatic fringe in the first place, processing has made that area more prominent. If you take everything back a bit it should get less prominent.

Saying all that the lead is still much better than the original Smile

yes, the light gets more glow but then you get this halo
well... you can't have everything
p.s. these halos have been torturing me for years.. have never been able to get rid of them without trace
