Suitable For Framing

Uploaded: February 22, 2007


Another composition in my antique store series....these frames were found
sitting in a back hallway, and I was able to shoot through a doorway to get this shot.
I applied several filters in Elements 5.0, including film grain, poster edges, and a
slight posterization. The saturation, contrast and shadow detail were also adjusted.

Perfectly framed image!
I think this image would look just as good without all the FX. It's well conceived. #609521

I like it a whole lot too. Like Les, I'd be interested to see it without the effects, too. Nice job! #3974586

Thanks guys and gals!! Your comments are a big help and most appreciated! I played with this for quite a while... now I'm curious too, to go back and adj the original without any effects. Sometimes I jump into PS and go right by what I originally saw when I took the shot!! I'll post another image to 101 when I have time to get back to this. #3975632

Melissa G. Meiselman February 22, 2007

Your effects are terrific as is your composition, colors and lighting, Brian!! It would be interesting to see whether the image stands alone without filters. #3975977

Thank you, Cathy and Melissa!! (Les and John also suggested an effects-free image, so I will be going back to see what I can come up with!! #3976589

I really need to expand my horizons and just wander more.
This is a great find!!
I, too, would like to see it uneditted.
