#260-365 Rest in Peace
These two shots were taken on my Sydney trip, way back when and I was tossing up between these two ornate looking plots that indicates strongly that the persons buried there were deeply revered. but I had a choice of two gravesites and couldn't decide. Recently I have been playing around with the Pseudo HDR Effect that Jeff Perry posted on the EV site and just as an experiment played around with these photos, the effect just did not work on the right hand shot but I like the end result of the left hand one. I will admit that Sally does not like this effect in the least, but a painter friend of hers is coming today and hopefully he will have the time to explain some arty apects to me!
Sally's thoughts are that the photo looks just like things really are/were/should be, when I use the effect then to my eye, yes things are exaggerated and make things pop out, like in a vivid OIL Painting, and as I can't paint in the least, this is as close as I will ever come to being able to paint. Any comments would be welcome bearing in mind that for this shot I tempered the effect out of respect.
