In this photo processing session, I had quite a lot of work to do. First, my intention was to give a very old look to this monument. The idea was to put emphasis on the monument's texture and ornaments. I had to straight it up and make the background less visible.

So I included a brief movie showing how the original photo looked. I like the dramatic look that I... Continue Reading →
Here is a photo of a building that is part of the McGill university campus downtown Montreal that I took in 2004. I thought the climbing tree on the concrete wall was creating a nice contrast, one opposing a very fragile and living thing against something so robust without life.
