This is a photo I took from the Calgary Tower last week while in Canada. The land surrounding Calgary is quite flat, but looming far in the distance on the horizon can be seen the Canadian Rockies which were quite impressive looking (click on image for a more detailed view).
Great images and terrific commentary (as usual) Alex. Sorry for late response to this round of IOW, but I am on holiday in North America and today is the first time I have logged onto PSE&M in a couple of weeks. I have alot of catching up to do on the site reading forum posts and perusing the galleries!
I'm still trying to find an architectural image that would look good converted to black and white. I haven't found anything of particular interest on my morning walks of late. As I am running out of time before I head off to Canada and the pac northwest this coming Sunday, I may need to hold off on this challenge until I get to Vancouver. I would imagine there will be some great architectural finds.
If the history of past releases is any indication, we should see Photoshop Elements 16 released within the next 30 days. I will wait to see what new features and functionality it provides before I make a decision if I will upgrade from PSE 15. A couple of things I would like to see would be the addition of a curves adjustment layer and a lighting effects filter.
This looks like it will be a top challenge Simone - thank you for putting it out there for us. I will keep an eye out for something interesting to photograph (other than the opera house or harbour bridge) tomorrow on my morning walk around the city. By the way, your images are superb.
