Postcard from the edge

By LuzDeNoche
Evenin' all.
Well, it has been six months since I last uploaded anything, and with one thing and another (I'll spare you the details) I just haven't felt like it.
However, my model husband, having dragged himself away from his somewhat tedious online card game, is now back uploading and encouraging me, so I thought this little effort might interest you.
We're launching the new internet site of the town very soon, and we're having a postcard printed to advertise the fact, and this is the proposed view of the basilica (of course) reflected in a window with leaf shaped cast iron bars over it. For me it was the perfect occasion to test the improved perspective tools in adobe CS4.
I hope you like it.

I'll be trying to visit as many 'old friends' as I can this weekend, once I've got the dental appointement out of the way Tongue

Delighted to see you here again, Lucy. You will find us all six months older, though our wisdom will doubtless be lagging far behind Smile

I like this original view for the combination of shapes that leaves the basilica instantly recognisable, and for the excellent tones. I hope the website launch goes well!

There were whoops of delight in Woolybill Towers. Great to see you back, things have been kinda quiet without you. But I think you will find us six months sillier rather than wiser.
This is beautiful, I guess it would be a bit too subtle for a postcard in England but the French have always had the edge there n'est-ce pas? So many layers in this, the iron-work and its reflections, the window frame, the cathedral reflection. Nicely done (in the true sense).

Good evening Lucy Pascal has dragged you back here so I guess mass is the next move,
What a super image you have returned with together with your sense of humour which has been sorely missed.

I have been wondering where you both are, people come and go on this site but some stick in your mind like old friends, and it has been that way, I do hope you are both ok and it is really nice to see you back on line.

I like the image very much indeed, very well thought out with the lovely reflections.

Whatever has happened to you, the most important thing is that you are again here with your excellent pictures collecting warm welcome messages of your epz-admirers (me including Smile )

Goodness me - hello you lovely thing - thought you had both gone forever (which is a very long time indeed) but hooray here you are back and in full flight too - unusual and engaging image a typically unique view of the world.

Everything has changed around here over the last 6 months as you would expect - not!

Good - feel happy now

Oh, I've never seen this one, must have been during one of my time out periods. It's good.
