|Tallcorn Towers Four Ways|
My inspiration is a historical building in downtown Marshalltown. I couldn't resist the name play of this building that is emphasized by the angle of this shot. I edited out a street light that cluttered the right side of the composition. Adding texture layers helped disguise some imperfections in that background edit.

|Even more color comes through...|
Let me remind you that there are additional textures and adjustments overlaid on the image. The above shots are showing the differences from playing with the black and white layer.

Be sure to check out Kim Klassen's web site. She is starting a Photoshop Essentials eCourse in February and will be covering both PS Elements and Photoshop. If my schedule wasn't already so full, I'd be taking that class. Her videos are easy to understand and she is generous in providing practice images as well as free texture layers. If nothing else, follow her blog.
You can see more of my recent editing at my Flickr photostream. Thanks for your comments!
Oh yes, that IS a new blog banner at the top of the page.... same scripture with a different background (part of one of my paintings that sold).
