Gothic church

  1. Simply gorgeous. I look at the detail and how the texture in the rock pops out from the frame, and think how I wish I could touch it. Here’s a question for you: How do you get that spotlight effect in the center of the photo? It’s subtle, but I can tell its there. Are you using Photoshop or some other package?

    1. Thanks! These days I do most of my editing in Adobe Lightroom, only really using Photoshop for texture work and more complex masking. It’s artificial vignetting, which can be easily achieved in pretty much any photo editor. I try not to overuse, but I felt that it suited the last few images.
