Interesting processing - sometimes I like these and sometimes I don't. I usually like it when other people use them and post good examples than when I try it myself, for some reason. This falls in the former category - I like it. Too bad you can't edit the title and call it "Seeing Red - Door, Ring, Ring, Ring" - it's very appropriate for the new challenge.

I was going to just post the original phone booth shot. Then I started playing with Picasa's new options and decided to check the Neon effect. I thought it worked on this picture. However, I would not use such an effect unless there is a good reason for it.

I did not realize that there is a new challenge...yes, that would be perfect.

I have played with the neon filter in Paint Shop Photo Pro X3 (PSPPX3) many times and have never been very impressed with it. I must say the same applies to your neon treatment from Picasa. I think I would leave it "in the box"!

However, I do like your photo of the British style phone box. It's an excellent choice for the Doors challenge and, as Mtngal stated. would be an excellent choice for the current "Seeing Red" challenge.

Thanks, Cal. I agree, the neon effect does not do much for me either. I just thought it was fun to post both images. It's too bad that I can't change the title of a post. Oh well, I have lots of photos of red subjects. I'm sure I'll find some for the new challenge.
