Week 24: Before and After

I was having a little fun in Photoshop, and chose a simple image to see how I could enhance it. My choice was a photo of a 5th century BC Doric capital from the Valley of the Temples near Agrigento, Sicily, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The first image, the Before, shows an unedited version of the capital, stark and uninteresting against a clear blue sky. Its comparison image, the After, in this case, is an example of applying filters in post. First I applied Hand Tinted Cream in Topaz B&W Effects from the Opalotype Collection, then I ran it through the Polaroid Transfer filter in Nik. As my ophthalmology technician asks, better one or better two?

Capital better 1

Capital Stylized better 2
