    The earliest of the California missions and a San Diego landmark.

    Looking past the courtyard fountain towards the main chapel.

    The garden between the chapel and the priest's living quarters.

    Both taken with a D200 converted for IR and a Sigma 10-20mm zoom. Lots of processing . . . maybe too much. What do you think?

    I like the overall tone and contrast of #1 and the composition of #2!

    Nice job!

    Thanks Mike.

    The processing is based on Kevin Scott's Tutuki article on the Orton Effect which can be found here: http://tutiki.org/w/index.php/The_Orton_Technique plus selective dodging, burning, and history brush application. I've been playing with it off and on and I'm finally getting some results that I'm happy with.
