Your processing improved the sheets of plywood, but I think I prefer the natural look. Beautiful place, even with the plywood.

That is a fun post processing you've chosen. So much more detail really shows up

That's a neat shot of the cathedral and I find it interesting how you worked the photo in Topaz Adjust. I'll have to look into that program. Dos it require you also have CS4?

What a wonderful view of the church and skies! I like both shots - one is a photo, the other a painting.

Thanks everyone:)

@ Kay: I think its stone or brick insets into the Marble but I cannot be certain.

The Cathedral dates back to 1479 and in the springtime the Spanish Steps are covered in Azaleas.

@ EG: It is compatible with most painting systems including CS3-5 and Photoshop Elements 6-9 here is a link to the website on the software. I am using the trial at the moment but its a lot cheaper at than Photomatix.

the photoshopped one looks extreme, yet still quite nice! looks like an image for publication :)

Both pictures have their own charm, but I like colors in the processed one better.

I like the vivid drama to the second image, but of course the original is a great photo in itself I think. Thanks for liking them both:)
