Going all medieval

Uploaded: March 17, 2006


The walled city of Carcassonne, France.

In Phototshop I used the channel mixer to convert the picture to black and white and curves to tone it. I then added the vignette around the edges. I also added a bit of a gaussian blur for a dreamy effect.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
