Dear Trine,

How I love this photograph - it's absolutely magnificent - ...I love it to bits. Indeed, I have an image that also captures a similar ceiling feature - although that's an archway leading to Prague Cathedral.

Please correct me if I'm wrong - and I most probably am - but isn't this the famous tower in Copenhagen?

Many thanks

Regards


Mark

PS: How did you get that border and manager to keep the file size down to manageble levels?

Thank you Mark, for your wonderful comment.To make the border, I used the "frame" filter in PS(You find it in the Actions-tool), and filled it with the colour I thought best suited the image. Then I used "Save for web..." and choose the quality needed for not making the image-file too big(that can vary from between 60 and 90 on different images, depending on how much information there is in the photo). Usually, keeping the file about 100kb is enough to show great detail on the web. ;-)Trine #1132

Trine,

Thanks for the PS advice - I'm so ignorant that I didn't know there was a "Save to the web" option! I'll just have to take this Photoshop a bit more seriously!! :)

I take it, this was shot in the tower in Copenhagen?!

Yes, you are quite right, it's the "Runde Taarn" (Round Tower)of Copenhagen. ;-)Trine #1135
