A little art-deco, with a twist

Where am I? At the historic Queen Victoria Building , originally built in 1898, Sydney.

Using Bonnie's (Pixel Dust Photo Art), latest giveaway texture "Wicked".  Loving what it did for this photograph.


What did I do?  Merge HUE only, with 15% transparency. 



Here's the original; it's lovely too in all its glory, but it sure was fun getting such a striking changeover with just a couple of steps.

It is a very fine staircase and proably not easy to get into a photograph. Three storeys no less/
And the fantasy version is charming. Rose-coloured glasses :-)

Carole - you've made a beautifully composed photograph look like a Broadway stage production - lit up to look surreal. Great processing. Thank you for sharing your artwork with Photo Art Friday!

I love the art-deco colors resulting from the addition of the texture.

Textures are so much fun, you never really know what sort of results you are going to get.

I hear you - too cool. Can't wait to try that "wicked" -- downloaded it earlier today and can't wait -- yummy color. Very nice processing and fantastic composition. Thank you, kareninkenai

Carole, Wow this is wonderful. I love how grand elegance of the original photo but like you I think the edit adds something unique and special as well.

Carola, how great that you already played around with "wicked" - I still have to do that, but your photo editing is a wonderful inspiration.
