About the Image(s)

HAPPY NEW YEAR everbody. I look forward to you continued participation in 2022 and hope that you enjoy many photographic opportunities.
Now my image:-
Whilst doing some furniture shifint prior to redecoration I came acrooss a heap of old prints I made in the 1980-1990's. I decided to scan some before contemplating disposal. This one of part of an old traction engine was a Cibachrome print (anybody remember these?) I took the jpeg scan into PS cropped and looked through Topaz Artistic presets until I found this one called I think Street Art. It seemed to me that this resuted in the feeling of a poster on a brick wall.

You have done a great job of converting the tractor sign into a wall poster. My only fear is that the conversion is so good it almost appears that you could have taken a straight shot of a poster on the wall. As a piece of creative art work though it is terrific!

You created an effective image. I find it ironic that I take many pictures of murals painted on buildings and often wish I couldn't see the bricks. Yours looks very good though.   Posted: 01/09/2022 22:22:42

An excellent conversion to black and white ! Not sure if I would have eliminated the white line from the lower area?   Posted: 01/11/2022 16:50:34

This is a very effective use of the Topaz filter. I think B&W was also a good choice.   Posted: 01/11/2022 18:23:27

Yes nice effect. Did the colour version not work, it would be nice to see that?   Posted: 01/19/2022 10:54:13
