Great Dpbours 2007-12-03 9:01

Hi Gordana,

Haha, the overall old look. I like that. You managed well. I do like the diagonals of the tiles in it as well! The toning is nice, but the vignetting wasn't needed in the top to make it feel old - or maybe a bit less... But I like it!

Default To Dpbours: Vignetting

Well I haven't heard for this word 'vignetting', so I had to use a dictionary to understand it and I think I know what's your objection about. U don't know, but I do know that the sky was very very lousy so I had to darken it somehow. If I cropped it, then a huge part of the photo would've been lost so I did darken the edges-vignette. I used my old camera which didn't handle light skies good, so that's the only reason for using the vignetting option not to mention that it helped me a lot for managing the old look. I hope it didn't ruined my photo.
Thanks a lot for your comment, it surely was very useful.

Hi Gordana!

Ah, the explanation really helps to see why you made the choice to do so! No, I now understand. If it were only for the old look, I think it is too heavy. Now knowing it is to camouflage the sky a bit, I see it is surely a good option!

You can also look at using gradual filters on the top part (in post processing), to work on the sky. But an uneventful sky will then never become very inspiring - merely an uneventful darker sky ;-). So I see your point!

Thanks for sharing this.

Greetings, Dennis
