Nanzen-in by DavidNowak Nanzen-in by DavidNowak
Nanzen-in - a temple in Northern Higashiyama, Kyoto, Japan.

EDIT: HOLY C**P! This got serious overnight! Thanks for the support, guys.

I'd also like to give a big thank you to all these clubs that accepted this photo. If it weren't for you, I imagine I'd never have any of my artworks seen.

Great drama.
Was this taken at night or artificially darkened?

Artificially darkened. I probably took it closer to noon.

Oh?! You're looking at buying it? I have to say, it still surprises me a little when people buy my work. I've always thought of myself as more of a hobbyist, but the support has been fantastic.

Yes, very soon. It would bring color to my living room. It could also be used for meditative purposes. ;)

How did you got those wondeful colors ? =O
Reply
:icondavidnowak:
DavidNowak Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013
Honestly, I struggle to remember, but I know that, partly, I used multiplied layers of the main file, and the Selective Colour tool. It's not nearly as simple as that, but those two elements were key. Also, if you got a solid dose of a single colour, like green leaves, it's worth making a layer of Hue/Saturation, then changing the setting from 'Master,' to 'Green' or whatever colour you want to change manually (most often with leaves, even though it doesn't look it, it will hold a main body of 'Yellow' tones. The green just dominates the eye sometimes.)

I hope that gives you some ideas to play with. You need to find the right type of photo for it to work on though.
