Another edited photo of the canal in Venice, Italy. This time I applied several texture layers to give it an impressionist type of feel. When I was adjusting one of those layers, I moved the sliders to adjust both the layer style I was applying and also the layer beneath it at the bottom of the blending options window in CS6. This gave the buildings that burnout look. Also used iris blur to focus on those blue boats that are docked in front of the largest building in the center. Love how the water’s color has many tones of cyan, blue, and green, all melting into one another.
A gentle breath…of Heaven.
