Mandarin Orange Monday 67

Good morning from a grey Hastings day.

Here is my contribution to this weeks     Mandarin Orange Monday 67      by LorikArt.


I changed this image to black and white using aperture.

Then added some colour using FX Photostudio Pro.

Mandarin orange lights

Then I altered the colours using Photoshop Elements 11 using the gradient map.  I then tweaked the highlights and shadows to show up the detailing more.

Another image of Hastings architecture from the 1920’s.  As with the lights I changed it to black and white using Aperture.

Then it was over to FX Photostudio Pro to polarise the image and add the frame.

Sepia house

Over to Photoshop Elements 11 to sepia tone it to give a more aged look.

House outline

I also used the old photo filter to just give the outline of the buildings.

Then I just used the gradient map again for the orange look.  Again I tweaked with the highlights and shadows to strengthen the lines.
