Hello Elvira,

Luciano is absolutely right: a bright sunlit scene most definitely is enhanced by the presence of a stormy or overcast and dark sky and this row of beautiful half-timbered buildings is no exception. And somehow I think that this is exactly as you saw it - definitely not a sky "imported" from another location!

And this is a fine composition too with a lovely strong diagonal line of the buildings on the right and a litle group of people on the left. And, when viewed at its proper size on "beta" TE the sharpness and details are exquisite - so much so that I see that the nearest building, a restaurant, clearly bears "Aux trois poissons" on its wall.


Kind Regards,

Default To notrap: A fabulous workshop! Thank you! :)

Hello Elvira,

Thank you so much for your kind words but thank you even more for your superb workshop!

Actually, as soon as I had posted this I immediately saw the error of my ways and how foolish I had been - what a crazy idea to chop the top off a monument - I can't imagine what I was thinking. Must be early (or late!) dementia!

I really should have done exactly what you have done - I presume you laid your sky over my (workshop, uncropped) image, applied a mask and then "painted through" the mask to reveal the new sky just where you wanted it. Either that or laid my image over your sky and similarly used a mask. You have certainly done the work very professionally and I can see no evidence whatsoever that the work has been done.


So now I'm in Scotland looking at a monument in Norway sitting beneath a German sky!

Thank you so much, Elvira!

Kind Regards,


P.S. Regarding the weather during our little cruise to Norway, the day in Bergen was actually the only dull wet one. If you look through any of my photos from Norway prior to Bergen you will see that the weather was very good! We were very lucky, I think.

Thank you John,
I'm glad you like it! But...... now you look at all my pictures in a different, suspicious way, always questioning wether the sky of anything else have been replaced......., and........ you are totally right !
Photoshop is my toy and my joy, I'm retired and obviously have too much time to play........
Kind regards,
