Zen View 2

Zen View 2

Reverse angle of the previous version, taken at the Hamilton Gardens.

I had played with black and white on this shot, but the richness of the walls contrasting with the green of the plants made me keep it in color. Too much processing to outline here, but included, lens correction (straighten and barrel correction), curves, selective levels adjustment on the floor, vignette, LAB color and sharpen, gaussian blur overlay (soft-light blend).

It’s probably easier if I just include the original (resized).
