Painted Stucco
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Painted Stucco
Painted Stucco
This tri-colored stucco wall is found on our local Chili's Resturant! I enhanced the color, contrast, hue, saturation, lightness and white balance. I also clonned out small spots, and exaggerated the sharpness to bring out the texture and detail of the stucco. Comments appreciated, and have a fabulous day!! Entered into *EOD*

Laura- Dear girl, what a joy it was to see your gallary and all the beautiful work that you do. Love the series on the grand Canyon. Must have been breath taking for you. Now this one is special and I think it will be back in the winners cirle. Love the brilliant colors, the lines, the textures. So artful and modern. Stunning work dear friend. Have a wonderful day, may God bless you.
