It's been a long time since I posted anything here.

Sent the 400D for repairs (it took a damm long 2 months) so was testing it today after I got it back.

Managed to take this pic about 1 min before a heavy downpour. Converted it to B&W+triptych in CS3.

C&C appreciated.

It'spleasing tosee the multi-centenary'Triptych' tradition is being followed in the digital erathrough sucha sensible work : ) Still, I'd also like to see the 'drama' castinga the playground before the heavy downpour inthe colours of the colourversion

Hye bahadir

Thanks for your comments.

As you requested... The "Drama" in colour.. I did not have the time to "triptych" this.. so I'm just posting the original image converted from RAW and PPed using CS3 (only played with the curves + levels- Nothing else)

Do you mean the triptych or the original photo? :-)

The original was good, but nothing special, but you turned it into a work of art!

Actually it's quite simple. (I used PS CS3 but the basics should apply to any photo editing software that supports layering)

Edit the picture (background layer)to your liking - BW, sepia, colour (your own creativity)

You have to copy the background layer about 3 copies.

Make sure you show the grid to get precise measurements when you crop later.

Using the rectangle marquee tool, make a selection for the 1st part of the picture on the TOP MOST layer. Cut that part and paste on a new layer. Repeat this steps for the 2nd and 3rd part. After this you can now delete the remaining parts of the top most layer.

Using the 2nd copy layer as a guide, arrange the individual 3 parts to align with the original picture. Then convert this 2nd copy layer into whatever frame colour you like.

This should do it. Hope this helps.
