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*
