    Hi, everybody, and thanx a lot!

    Well...special techniques... I will upload the colour variant in a week, is interesting, too. After opening an image in Photoshop I always check the channels. By this one i noticed that the red channel looks very impressive (the statue and clouds become brighter, the sky - darker, the buildings look dramatic etc.), but is too noisy to extract alone. So I applied several filters from PowerRetouche like "studio b/w" where I dragged all "red" sliders to their limits and got the same effect. After that I used "dodge" (for highlites) and "burn" (for shadows) brushes with 6% strength and "painted" slightly on the church to emphasize the texture. Finally I applied Powerretouche "toned photo" (cyan tone) and "sharpen" filters

    As to the sunset - it was behind the church, on the statue there was a rosa reflection from the sky. So, in the red channel it became bright.

    Thank you very much!!!

    Very good, indeed! Was it the sun which illuminated the statue this way or is that a digital effect? Anyway, I like it!!
    Greetings, Martin

    Really an eye catching picture. You did the upload in "special photo technique", but didn´t tell anything about it.
    As Ruud I am very interested..:-))
