Default House of effects :-)

I tried the demo of xenofex 2 from http://www.alienskin.com .
It can produce quite nice effects, like in this picture. Guess what's wrong? :-)



Greetings, Stefan

I guess the lightning and the sky is wrong.
But i think that puzzle filter doesn't fit to the picture. it would look far better without, I guess.

Sergio,

Unless you've got a weirdly designed building there, the upper right hand corner has a strange angled perspective.

I actually like the jigsaw puzzle effect for this shot.

I think it is an excellent photo! And as a jig-saw I think it would be excellent. I would definetely buy it in the shop.

Here are are my questions:

Is it the original sky? and original lightning? If not, was it something you got from somewhere else?

Did you do something digitally to the colour of the building? If so, what did you do?

I looked at it for ages, and could not find anything wrong with it.

it is indeed a beautiful photo and very creative composition.
I also like the jigsaw puzzle. it's very interesting.
as the others said, I guess only the sky and lightning are wrong.
Maybe Selvin is also right about the upper right hand corner.
But is there anything else? :roll:
Let us know!

Well, I show you the original picture. I just made some perspective corrections, adjusted the color a bit in PS, cropped and framed it. Then I played with xenofex to test it on the pic. I was surprised how easy to use it is. So for test reasons I combined three effects of xenofex in this picture. The lightning, the complete sky and of course the puzzle effect.



Greetings, Stefan

Very very nice looking indeed !

As far as perspective is concerned I think that what makes this building looking a little bit odd is te fact that it should have been rotated a little bit after having applied the perspective correction.
If you look at the line just below the first floor windows you'll immediatly realize what I mean !
