Thanx and I'm glad you liked the effect.

Actually it was more of a side effect than an effect.

But I liked it and Iapplied itin the second one too.

This is the story :

The first shot had a small tonal range, let's say a 1/4 of the full range.

Automatic levels yeld awful results modifiying colors and the manual level correction , while good on the sky was not good on the monument part.

The two parts needed to be corrected individually.

So I selected with the magic wound the whole sky part and I manually corrected levels to yield a deep blue sky.

Unfortunatly this operation, due to the original limited range, increased digital noise.

I then applied a blur control filter with a big value to remove all of the noise.

As a side effect the application of a blur filter with big values creates a sort of aura around the selection borders. ( Have a look of a similar application of the effect on this post of mine Milan Cathedral Facade )

In the first shot I also changed the levels, contrast and brightnessof the monument part in such a way that it was pretty bright , which was fitting good for me along with the halo effect.

In the second shot I applied the same tratement to the sky.

The car has been blurred for the same reasons too ( it was very dark with a very limited tonal range! Maybe I should have posted it in the silhouette challenge ).

That's the reason why, jackrussel.
