Bob, I can't believe nobody else noticed this. I was looking at your signature area, especially your picture. Slap me silly if you don't look just like Jolly old St Nick !

Also, as you've been told already, very nice photo and nice work on the edit.

And a Happy and Photographically rewarding New Year!

Bob, I tried the effect on another structure (in Havre de Grace, Maryland). What do you think?

Hi Walter! I like it! I wasn't to keen on how it made my sky look on that old farm photo of mine but I really like the effect on the rest of the photo. I think it works great on those buildings in your photos! I may have to check into upgrading from Photo paint 10 to your version.

Bob, you should be able to do it in ver. 10. What I did was to mask out the sky using the "magic wand" effect. Since the sky was almost entirely one shade of blue it was easy to do. Then I reversed the mask to highlight the house and trees and applied the local equalization effect to that. I then went back to the sky and lowered the "gamma" until I had a nighttime effect (the shot was taken during daylight hours).

That way, the sky was left unaffected by the local equalization.

Here's one more version...this time with the trees masked out and the moon added. Maybe too distracting?

I really liked the first and now that I've seen the second I like it much better. I like the trees dark much better, I also like the look with the moon, but I like it without also. Thanks for sharing the tips on how you did this, I will put them to use.
