I tooks some more artistic liberties with "Les Facades", as you can see also in my gallery. I dug this one out of my inventory from last year's vacation to Europe. I captured the various facades of the buildings that surround the harbor in the village of Honfleur. I cropped the original image, adjusted the lighting, boosted up the H&SL, and applied a watercolor filter. This capture took a white ribbon (3rd place) at the 2011 Rockingham County Fair. Thanks so much for looking at my gallery!
