Old Ruins

Uploaded: August 17, 2007


Mesa Verde, Colorado. Cliff Dwellings.
Added a colored pencil filter at 15% transperancy. Some Saturation and some sharpness. I thought the filter would give it a neat rustic effect. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday!

Brenda, I love all your photos of these ruins! Really like the effects on this one, too. At first I thought these were in Arizona--my husband and I climbed around some there ... it was a bit nervous-making because as you said, they are built into the side of cliffs. #4665274
