Dyane,

This is a lovely location and the flowers are amazing.

I had a bit of a go at whitening things up a bit - before and after shots attached. Hope you don't mind - just thought it might interest you:

Hi Robert - yes you are quite right, it is as though the window frames form crosses. Have no idea if this was done deliberately given the nature of the building, but most window are like this out here - just not quite so tall. Thanks for taking the time to look - Dyane

Hi Dyane,

I think the main 2 things I did were increasing the highlights and adjusting white balance. Most editing tools let you adjust white balance by clicking on something that should be white - in this case, the whitest part of one of the flowers.

More impressive "snaps" by you Dyane.

From the first photo's you posted of Petit Séminaire, I did not realise how big the building was, I don't think I would have just wondered in and looked around

Well I have been obsessed on getting in there for the last 6 years. So when I found I had a talent for breaking and entering, it just had to be done. It took a while for my jitters to die down, but on the times I got in, I was there for over 3 hours each time. George the dog acted as my warning system - only prob, he kept getting lost in the labyrinth of corridors and stairs
