I've been experimenting with a new post-processing technique. Let me see if I can explain it.
I process the photo using my usual steps, which, I suppose, are nothing but usual. But if you've seen the new HDR Tutorial, then you know the kind of stuff I do. But then, at the end, I run the final photo through Silver Efex Pro. I then take that layer and change the blend mode to either Hardlight or Overlay. That is what gives the kind of effect you see here.
Looks like I broke my 5 minute post production rule on this one. This is the Drum Point Lighthouse at the Calvert Marine Museum, shot in IR, and presented in false color with a watercolor effect added. Photography as art. Total time, 45 minutes. Layers 10. Brushes, lost count. Hope you like it. I do.
