A different skyline

So you’ll be wondering what I’ve been smoking. I was playing with the enhanced curves feature in Photoshop CS3. It had a preset for “Cross Processing” which is something I’ve always liked in other’s photos but I’ve never got it right in mine. For some reason it just worked in this shot and I actually liked it. I’m expecting no-one to like it which is why I’ll be posting a non-cross processed version tomorrow, so don’t unsubscribe just yet. It is noisy due to the HDR processing, but I feel that gives it an extra film like quality. I think its good to take risks now and then, to push limits. A cross processed HDR, definitely something in my cereal. Oh this is Toronto, not Liverpool. I’m just working through some old shots so bare with me.

For any Liverpool bloggers out there, Stuart from Feeling Listless has setup Liverpool Blogs which is about bringing bloggers in Liverpool closer together. If your name isn’t on the list, tell him.

  1. on the contrary..a stunning picture that brings out the “darker side” of Liverpool. Great shot!

  2. It’s an interesting shot. I’ll enjoy seeing you develop this processing technique.

    @terry – it’s Toronto, not Liverpool

  3. Hey, I like it. Has a very cinematic feel to it, almost computer generated – but in a good way. Some may hate it, but it’s still a cool shot to have under your belt!

  4. Excellent! No words to say. Wow!
