Parrocchia di San Salvador
Parrocchia di San Salvador
Venice, Itlay
Canon 10-22mm lens @ 10mm, ISO 250, F8.0, 1/50 sec. ( UV filter)
The original Canon RAW image file was converted and adjusted with Adobe Lightroom
Additional adjustments were preformed with Corel Paint Shop Pro and NIK Viveza plug-in
I used Corel Painter Photo Essentials 4 to create the painted looking effect.
In the final stage I layered on a textured image and erased various portions. (Opacity @ 65%)

I'm not seeing the original but what a masterful job you have done here. The composition is classically perfect and the effects -- well, I don't know what to say. I don't often use this adjective but this is amazing.
