The Green Roof

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Well, I thought I would try another experiment in artistry. Does it work? You tell me?

Technique: Starting with an all colour picture. Selecting only the building, then inverting the selection- converting the rest to Infra-red - finally pushing up the roof saturation.

Stunning pic Herb... Amazing!!  I got here from a link posted to a pic by SteveW on a pic by drewster69er. It was a few years ago but a good tip.

Stuart--, its been nearly two years since anybody commented on this old favorite.I still pass this shelter from time to time. Interesting to see the route you took to find it via my friends Drew and SteveW. Ah -the days when I really did some experimenting with photos. I still do some but show most of that on my Flickr account where it seems to be slightly better appreciated? Cheers for the visit, Herb
