Sage by 121divided121 Sage by 121divided121
Photo of the Sage building in Newcastle. The original image is very grey as the day i visited was very overcast and down right crappy for photography. So this is my attempt at making something interesting from a poor photo - everything i changed is listed below.

*im aware of the bands of colour towards the right of the image but cant be bothered getting rid of them (and dont know why photoshop felt it needed to include them)

In Photoshop CS2

**edit** - just got a print of this at A4 size and the colour bands i see on screen are not there... Odd... Anyone else see them?

Rendered light source, increased contrast, increased cyan in midtones, magenta in shadows and yellow in highlights! Very simple really

Let me know what you think!

Great image...and yes, I see the bands too. I've had that happen before though with there being bands on the screen but not on the print...weird.

yeh i have had it printed and is fine - someone else commented its something to do with the JPEG file compression system etc but the image is fine - just on screen it makes me scared!!!

thank you very much for your comment - always much appreciated! :D

Looks brilliant. Interesting looking building and I think the edits add a whole new feeling to the picture. Bit of mystery and otherworldiness.

Yes i do see the bands, but compression in jpg will do that in ps. The print will not be affected because it isn't made smaller (normally).

As to the shot. Looks great. I first thought 3d-work .. looks very surreal. Nice one!
