Sliders Sunday

For this weeks Sliders Sunday I have used a photograph of my favourite lighthouse at Talacre. Taken at sunset it was still a little too bright so I darkened it down by adjusting the levels in Photoshop. Next a layer mask was used to reduce the effect of the levels adjustment on the lighthouse.

Colours were tweaked by running the image through NIK Color Efex and then a painted effect was achieved by using a freeware program called Fotosketcher.

Sliders Sunday is a Flickr Group devoted to having fun pushing those sliders in your digital photography program. Group rules are quite simple

  1. You are not allowed to post SOOC pictures
  2. You should have had fun experimenting with processing the picture you post
  3. You can only post on Sunday
  4. You must describe or tag your shot as intended for this group by either describing your processing or by tagging it HSS or “sliders sunday.”
  5. Please take a moment and comment on other group members
  6. One Shot per Week
