Ready for another one? This is the "Tower Building" at campus, seen from the side. There's a small pond/fountain thingy with lots of flowers in the summer. Taken last year sometime.


My edit has been cropped and "framed" - just because I felt like it. I've also saturated the flowers a bit, because I thought it would fit the "theme" of presenting the uni building in the best possible way: idyllic. My sky is a bit weird, but not something major I'm bothered by. My editing also includes adjusting curves for contrast, brightening the reflection and sharpening.
Looking forward to seeing other versions.


BTW, I've uploaded .CR2 raw files (Canon). I hope there won't be much problem with using these files. Click on link to get to the pictures! My settings followed by picture:

Wow, I can't imagine anyone doing much better than what you've already done. It's a beautiful treatment as it is.

Likewise. There are many free file hosting sites which do not require everyone to login or sign up.

Anders you shouldnt have posted your finished image. Its so good it cant be improved on so it seems a waste of time to try. Thats a compliment and not a put down.

Compaq, thanks for sharing the source images. Can't really improve over what you've done. To my eyes, my merged image called for a little horizontal straightening. This is the output from Photoengine which was just straightend and cropped in PS.

Sparky, that old-ish look on your first edit is pretty neat. It's growing on me, I like it more and more each time I look at it.
