[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the second picture of St Maria Cathedral.
This time just change the mood into a gothic one by change the tonal.

- First change into greyscale
- Add duotone pantone and then convert back to RGB
- Add hue till it's dark blue,
- Adjust to this tonal by color balance.
- Give highlight by burn and dodge in different layer

Hope you like it

Nicely done! Very heavy gothic mood you have produced.

Thanks for the note, must try this my self!


Lovely moody shot, Yan! The windows are a bit underexposed and too black but maybe that's your intention. TFS,
Freddie :)


Hi Yan,
A very intrigue and moodish picture. I like the dark blue tones and special POV. Great capture fine PP-work.

Belle réalisation Yan,
Le traitement de la couleur et des contrastes ainsi que la contre-plongée donne un aspect sombre et inquiétant qui me plait beaucoup.

Fantastic work. Without the white thin frame I think it would have looked more foreboding. But it is a beautiful photo as it is now. Congratulations!

Hi Yan,
Wonderful photo here. Good POV and focal length. Nice texture to the sky. Well done!

Very good POV Yan:) - all this work is nice one picture and gothic look is very strong.
Is that next illustration for Harry Potter??? - ha ha, it will be nice and you will have a lot of money for it.

Hi Yan, yes I like very much the treatment that you did!
It is very dramatic.

Take care, Yan :)
