Fly-over by halkia

Fly-over

11.24 am: Another silhouette shot. We went to Ikea this morning to buy a new tap for our kitchen, as our old one has started dripping. I took a shot from the car of this fly-over at Prins Claus Plein.

I liked the composition but because of the solid grey sky and subdued light the original shot was very dull. I added a little boost and cross process in Picnik and suddenly this came out.
Leuk! En ik vind het Prins Claus Plein altijd erg indrukwekkend als ik er langs kom.

I am a huge fan of Piknik's cross process. I really like how you used it on the sky, it looks really great.

Fantastic silhouette!!

Boost and cross process is what I do with everyone of my pics LOL it gives such a lovely affect! Love the composition of this one.

The geometry is great! Love the way the X seems to be crossing the sky. You´re quite perceptive, my friend.

Ik ben het helemaal eens met Denise!

I love this! The green almost makes me feel like it's an underwater shot. BTW, the first IKEA I went to was in Germany. The one I go to in CT is just the same...I always feel like I am back in Europe. Love the crazy carriages with 4 wheels that turn. :-)

@haagjes Zeker heel indrukwekkend, ik had de foto dan ook gepland. Dat hij is gelukt was een mooie meevaller :)

@electricwriter @viranod @jodimuli @gijsje @clarissajohal Thank you all for your comments! They are much appreciated.

@caatjeg @jeancarl @deniseescovino Thank you! The intersecting lines of the roads really make this shot.

@attraversi @araminta @lakruijf @filo13 Thank you. I love Picnik and the cross processing tool is great to enhance certain kind of shots. I usually apply it in a more subtle way but for this shot I went way out :)

@5unflow3r Thank you! And you're right, all Ikea's look the same! I think that's part of its success, people know what to expect :)

Love it. Love the vintage city feel.

Fantastic shot! I love the color of the sky.

The processing does make it look like more than boring roadway.
