Year two 031 - up or down?

No cats today :)
Managed to get out and about to the Trafford Centre in Manchester. I don't like shopping but Jo wanted to go and we thought a Monday would be quiet ..... we were right!
I snapped away on my phone as we were mooching about and managed to get a couple of shots I was reasonably happy with.

Three good things today:
1. A beautiful morning - blue sky and sun ... if a little chilly!
2. The Trafford Centre was quiet which meant we got a proper look around.
3. A beautiful English sparkling "champagne" wine ..... we saw it on a program at Christmas and it is every bit as nice as they said :))
Fab POV wonderful detail in this capture!

Fab capture, enjoyed my visit there a few years ago.

It is quiet...funny how a new place to use our cameras means we are always willing to go somewhere!!!

This was taking with my Samsung galaxy two. I uploaded all the photo's I had taken onto my pc and quickly looked at them with pse 11. The decent ones I took into photomatix to see if they would work with the HDR effect. I then took this one and created a duplicate layer on which used the graphic novel filter in sketch. I then reduced the opacity until the colour shows through at a level I am happy with then merge the layers. Add my frame and signature and all done!
I just love this particular type of processing! :)

Love the textures, colours, perspective and lines in this.
