Default Topaz Adjust on Cragsmoor Church

In my previous treatment for this photo (posted in "Architecture") I used Dynamic Photo HDR and Topaz Detail for the church tower (and trees) and Topaz Adjust for the sky.

For the following version I used Topaz Adjust for both sky and foreground. I wanted to try a stronger effect.

I used two photos -- one with the church (and trees) properly exposed and one with the sky properly exposed. I cut out the church from the first photo (using Topaz Remask) and overlaid it on the second. Both photos were taken in RAW. Neither photo is HDR.

I used Topaz Adjust's "Psychedelic" preset on the church and Topaz Adjust's "Crisp" preset on the sky. To remove noise, I used Topaz Denoise.

I'd appreciate any C&C. Thank you for looking.

excellent work on this one. gives it a very brooding atmosphere, which is quite appropriate given the halloween just ending

and nice animation musket, shows the difference very clear.

Thanks, Hards80.

I was looking at the sample pics at Topaz Labs' website when I created this. I guess here, unless an image is posted in the Digital Arts or HDR section we expect it to be realistic-looking and people say so if not. Over there at Topaz Labs, the sample images all look like altered-realities so I wanted to try and make one of my own.
