The Wall by maggiemae

The Wall

More sun today - not too cold to go walking down by the sea and chose to photograph the huge wall of the Steam Punk Headquarters. I used the EV to lighten the shot and then used levels to bring more colour to the mask.

Three good things:
1. Felt really proud of my town - a lot going on - building, beautifying, planting etc.
2. Being retired means you can go to bed early if you want… I did and caught up on some lost energy.
3. Fresh salads in a bag to buy.
It is a good thing when you can be proud of where you live. I love your processing on this cool wall and how the rusty old barrels look pastel.

Thanks Dixie - there are heaps of things to photograph in this area but it actually a matter of actually seeing them as a photo!

This really is a cool wall! I love your editing too.

It is such an interesting building ... a very different processing of it .. I love your town as well .. It got some bad press the other week on 7 Sharp which I though was unfair ..

You're really adventurous with your processing, can I ask what program you use? PS I was born to be retired!!

I really like how you have process this. The color is very interesting and helps the details stand out

@julzmaioro But you should have been aware of what happened after that - the News Team decided they would have to come to Oamaru! I was really surprised they didn't know about me - famous person born in Oamaru! lol!

@fbailey I use iPhoto processing and also PhotoscapeX, Felicity. Sometimes I don't do any processing as it doesn't make a photo more appealing!

@maggiemae Thanks Maggie, I'm not familiar with either of these. I use Elements 11 and the free Nik filters. Most of my pics need all the help they can get!

@fbailey I use NiK too - its often the knowledge of what these editing functions can do to get the end result you have desired.

@grammyn Its actually made of Oamaru stone, Katy and as this wall faces south, it has quite a lot of mould and green on it - so I wanted to minimise that!

@janemartin This is on a side wall, Jane and not seen much by anyone unless you go down the side. On the other side, more public is a odd looking fisherman fishing off the roof for steam punk butterflies!

Haha I did think of you both ... and expected you to pop up one night ..

Dramatic shot

Interesting building- also quite interesting that there is a whole building dedicated to Steam Punk. It hasn't caught on that widely here. Good shot.
