Mandarin Orange Monday 46

This week I am returning to Manly again – both digitally and physically – for a day visit.
The building I have used is perched high above the beach and has views of its entire length. There is even a stairway leading to the Surf Club and finally the sand. I think it is a beautiful old building and would love to live there….if only.

1. Manly Flats. PS Sharpen and Tones/Curves adjusted

2. PS Filter Gallery – Poster Edges.
Adjust Shadows/Highlights
3. Nik Color Efex Filter – Photo Styliser
Nik Sharpener
Topaz Clean Filter – Crisp Style
PS Adjust Curves and Vibrance
Topaz Detail – Fill Light

4. Same as No. 3.
PS Desaturate all but red.
Adjust Curves
PS Filter Gallery – Poster Edges
5. Isolate a section using PS cropping tool
PS Selective Color – change all white to cyan (Absolute)
6. Isolate smaller section.
PS Filter Gallery – Palette Knife

7. Topaz Filter – Clean – Cartooned.

8. As above. Topaz Filter Clean – Cartooned. Cropped again.
For both 7 and 8 I selected a smaller section and pasted about 5 times, at different angles. Each time I adjusted the transparency and blending modes. Finally I adjusted colours using PS Selective Color and adjusted curves.

Thank you so much to all for visiting and taking part in Mandarin Orange Monday. Thank you also for your thoughtful comments.
