On my D50 with the kit 70-300mm kit lens. Forgot the settings I had but its obviously not that great of a pic. Made a few changes but its far from good

- slight crop to remove too much sky
- small chnages in colors
all done in photoshop

Go easy on me as I am complete newbie. I have just gotten off shooting in Auto and am getting the hang of making changes to the camera depending on what im shooting

I am having lots of fun and I cant wait to get some nice wide angle lenses this spring Getting a 17-55mm nikon 2.8

Good idea, indeed, providing an edit already converted to B&WAnd here's the colour version ; ) I simply adjusted highlights, sharpened, removed some noise and reduced the size to fit the screen!

Btw, I must say I appreciated the use ofthe foreground reconciling the edifice with its environment. Thanks for sharing, v12!

Good edit Bahadir, Post processing is a very large part of the art

of digital photography, often a mediocre shot can be vastly improved

and a good shot brought to excellence.

some do all the PP on the large shot and then reduce it to a suitable

size, and some do PP on the large shot and then reduce it in size and

then sometimes more PP until they are satisfied that they have got the

most from the shot. musket

Good point! especially if we are to call this 'art' ! And, in this 'human added nature' process, there's always the risk of ending up with an image which looks so unnatural! The danger is so obvious, still, the artist will know where to start and where to stop..
