Signs of Rothenburg

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Signs of Rothenburg
Signs of Rothenburg
The medieval town of Rothenburg is famous for being one of the most romantic towns for its flowers and various signs. This hotel sign dates to 1559 and represents a lion. I tried to get those essences in this capture. It had been a while since I posted from my trip down the Rhine/Danube. Used the Nik suite in the processing.

  Rothenburg Sign from Perfect Suite
Rothenburg Sign from Perfect Suite
On this version I did the processing in the Perfect Suite 6. First converted to B&W and layered with the original version in a stack. I then selectively added color in and out and then added some turbo boost in another layer.
I liked both for different reasons. Comments welcome on both.

I think the blue sky brings out the colouring beautifully.

I long to walk down a street or a cobblestoned road and look up to see something like this. I have never been anywhere really OLD before. It would be so enchanting. Lucky YOU!

Very well done, Emile!

Wonderful post and you've captured the allure of the place. Love your incredible virtuosity in processing. The first one with the awesome blue sky gets my vote for a truly outstanding image. Well done Emile!

Like both a lot- prefer the first, Emile! Tones, colors, clarity, lighting & detail are exceptional, my friend!
Great info- sounds like a great trip.

Love what you did to the sky and applaud your positioning yourself so that you got that gorgeous sigh out where the sky backs it up. Fantastic pov, colors, and look Emile. Awesome.
