AB Friday (Fredericksburg TX) Week 66

After-Edit-2-ABF 11-13


I used the Nik Efex to get the After result. The process of combining the Tonel Contrast, Details Extractor, Reflector Efex, Levels and Curves, and Colorize (#6) brought up the textures of the bricks and colors and details of the building.

The photo was taken at Fridericksburg, Texas, a charming Texas Hill Country town. Many old buildings have been preserved and converted in to restaurants and unique shops.

Ben’s AB Friday is entering week 66. This Friday, he is showing us how he transforms the photo of the Malbork Castle dinning hall. Ben explains,’This shot is a view of the end of the dining hall where the new knights of the order would eat. When I first saw this scene I knew I wanted it in black and white. There was just something about the textures and a mood that led me down this path.”  Click HERE, take a look.

  1. Good morning, Amy,
    Now THAT looks familiar! A great building to take a picture of, isn’t it? But I must admit I like the “before” better. It looks more natural to me, even if the details don’t come out that sharply. It’s mostly the colours, I think, that I prefer in the original.
    Have a great day,


    • I love this building, it’s so unique and well preserved. So glad you like the original, Pit. I was temped to make the original a bit of different 🙂 Enjoy the fall weather, pretty cloudy here this morning.

  2. It sure is a unique building. I have a picture of it, too, but taken from an angle. Too far off to the side to be good. I need to go there again.
    Here, it’s overcast. I think I really need to work in the garden, 😦 putting up fences, since I discovered more trees where the buck had rubbed off bark. But I WILL enjoy the fall.
