This image was taken at the Rococo Gardens in Painswick, Gloucestershire. In Photoshop, I flipped the image horizontally, removed the colour, colorized the image and then applied Plastic Wrap and Neon Glow Filters

I really LOVE this effect.
It has the feeling of being in the past and any minute a horse and carriage will drive around the curved section.
A "Classic"!   Posted: 09/09/2020 00:54:22

Phillipa, Thank you for your kind words which are much appreciated. I like your analogy of the horse and carriage drawing up in front of the house and how the image conjures up memories of yesteryear.   Posted: 09/09/2020 05:36:14

Brian, You have shared an image that makes traditional Rococo look Art Deco. I keep looking for the spirits who are haunting the area. Very well done.   Posted: 09/14/2020 18:18:49

Peter, Thank you for your kind words which are much appreciated. It is good when the boundaries of traditional art forms can be blurred to create a third image; a bit like Audio Visual.   Posted: 09/20/2020 15:45:13

Your use of filters worked so well. I love the lighting you have achieved on this. The whole image glows with a fantastic light. Great composition and the design work on the building really stands out, probably due to the plastic wrap, but for whatever reasons it is a real pleasure to look at.   Posted: 09/19/2020 18:19:54
