About the Image(s)

I am a fan of Escher's work and this is my take on his style. The photo is the front of St Ann de Beaupré Cathedral in Quebec. Looking at the roof line of the church I thought it would mesh together into a triangle very nicely. I used a very old version of photoshop -- CS4.

It took me awhile to analyze this to see what you did -carefully joining three rotated layers of slightly different but complimentary sections of the facade. Right? Very creative.

I'm a long time admirer of Escher and like this a lot. You did an excellent job of bringing out the details and the monochrome treatment is perfectly appropriate.

I noticed that right most steeple is slightly brighter, so I would brighten it to equal the exposure of the other towers and enhance the symmetry.   Posted: 06/02/2021 18:35:55

Thanks. I really didn't notice the darker steeple until you pointed it out.   Posted: 06/09/2021 23:57:26

Good B&W and lot of detail. I like the idea and am off to research Escher now! Its a shame the top right steeple doesnt point towards the centre which I totally understand why it cannot be so! Would lighten in as recommended by Jerry (good spot Jerry)   Posted: 06/08/2021 14:29:04

I, too, am a huge Escher fan. You have channeled him magnificently! This is a wonderful image! Somewhere, Escher is smiling!   Posted: 06/10/2021 08:57:28
