I went to Sweden! Ok, it was brief - but I went!
This is the main terminal, or Central Station, in Malmo Sweden. Yes, I went to Sweden. I just like to say that. Ok, so it wasn't a visit to Stockholm, but hey I was actually in Sweden so that counts, right?
Anyways, I took a day trip over from Copenhagen and just had to visit Malmo since it is only ~30 minutes away. It was one of those "why not?" decisions. I'm glad I did.
Topaz Adjust saves the day...
As you can tell, this photo is a bit different than most of my shots. I usually go for a bit more realistic look, but in this case I threw that idea out the window. I was messing around with it in Topaz Adjust because after processing this 7 frame HDR, it just looked boring. In fact, it was boring. So I decided to run it through Topaz Adjust and hope for something interesting.
While in Topaz I happened to pass my mouse over the "Color Negative" setting, and the preview just caught my eye! That was it - I was done and very happy to have something interesting and unique out of an otherwise "blah" photo. Thanks Topaz!! You saved this one for me!
Oh, and I just named this photo based on the first thing that popped into my head when I saw it. It was actually shot around 12 noon. It was the Color Negative setting that made all the difference!
