We Three Kings!

This is my second experiment with PhotoShop, of statues at Barcelona Cathedral.
I cropped, used curves and colour balance.
Again, all comments/suggestions most gratefully received.

Hi Tracey,
I love the Subirachs statuary at the Sagrada Familia (which is the name of the church). The Cathedral in Barcelona is in the Barri Gotic in the town centre.
Good shot I love the place.

I'm surprised this hasn't received more comments - I like the composition on this (the cropping definitely helps) and I like the muted colours and detail.

Cheers Pete!

The original was quite larger in area, with more statues dotted around, but I preferred this crop.

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Like this a lot Tracey. The toning's great and the crop makes it an interesting shot. I wonder if you have two photos in here .. there's another crop just of faces and chests - just where the end of that vertical shoulder line is - which would put the focus just on the faces .. but it is your shot! clickyclicky

As Magda says: great angle and Suzi: another pic there. But love this shot - textures/lines/light

Thanks Suzi and Mark for your comments.

Suzi, great idea about the alternative crop, thanks. I'll try that now!

Suzi, thanks again for your suggestion.

I tried it, but it looks too noisy, as I had to zoom in a fair bit on the original photo.

Never mind, back to the drawing board!

If cropping and altering the coour balance put a photo in the digitally manipulated section then most of the pictures on the site belong in there.

Nice shot.
I thought it looked familiar from the thumbnail. I was there earlier this year.
I ws on a Stag do so no photos though

LOL Nick! Bet you had a wild time! Fab place.

True about the manipulation point - I just felt that since it wasn't the "original" image, I needed to categories it as such.

Thanks for dropping by!
