Our World Tuesday: Old Sign, Falkirk

Sign

I took this today whilst shopping in Falkirk:

I rendered this old sign with the new Topaz Adjust 5 software: The original was a little blue and I didn't like the piping so I used new Topaz Adjust 5's split toning, vignetting and borders options to process the image.

The vignetting really made the subject focused. Wooer Street sounds funny to me.

Hi Jane - nice result. Would you believe I am currently using a Nikon Coolpix P&S camera too (although it's the S2500 model), having also moved on from a Canon Ixus 60 ?! Thanks for visiting my blog - I shall doubtless be back to see more of your images. Have a great week.

Great shot Jane.

I love it, the old-time feel of the photo matches the old sign.

I really do need to give Topaz a try. This shot is wonderful. The circles on the sign actually look like spectacles to me. Wonderful photography. genie

Hello Jane,

Interesting point of view.
What a lot of processing went into that. Never heard of Topaz. Is that your programme of choice for editing?

Jane said...

@ Valerie: Your're Welcome, mine is an older make, I have to say that I am a Nikon fan, they have some nicer features on their camera's not that Canon aren't good cameras but I prefer Nikon's, I have an old vintage advantix Nikon camera still in a drawer.

@ Genie: Thanks, you should check out their website for the software, the plug in it is compatible with practically all software and you can try trial ones for free. LOL funnily enough, there is an opticians near there so the sign is appropriately shaped.

@ Hannah: I love Topaz, I use other forms of Post Processing equipment though, including photoshop -its a great detail enhancer software though and easy to use so I like to use it a lot these days.

Thanks for visiting everyone, much appreciate it:)

Hi there - the processing does give the picture a great atmosphere. I rather like it.
