MM Plus 3

Mine is simple this week.  I tend to like things that way.  Wonder why it never is?  LOL  Anyway, I took this of the Belk Tower at St. Andrews, at the lake.

 

 
I took it to Picnik, cropped it up, used the holgaish feature (that's probably not the way it's spelled.)  Then changed it to sepia.  I kinda like it this way.  Look forward to seeing the entries this week.

  2. I actually like the sepia best. This shot is beautifully suited to monotone, the play of llight and shadow is much more dramatic. Is that a big bird in the sky?

  9. it is amazing .. I love the fact that in sepia you brought out the bells and the soaring bird that really doesn't come out in the original. It is gorgeous.

  10. Lovely work Linda, agree with all the above, the conversion really makes the right things stand out and the vignette works well to.
    I shall be back with mine soon.
