Another View of the Palace of Fine Arts – San Francisco

Palace of Fine Arts - San Francisco

Here’s a more processed view of one of the images from our photowalk yesterday at San Francisco’s Palace of Fine Arts. I thought this image might benefit from some addition of textures – because of that boring grey sky! While I ended up with a bit of texture in the sky areas, the real power was in the columns!

This final image has had three different textures added – using different blend modes and opacities – all applied using PhotoShop CS5. Click here to enjoy a large version.

I have played around sporadically with adding textures – here’s an example from early 2010 with two versions. I actually had the gold version printed on a small canvas wrap – it’s beautiful up close!
