Nice surprise today

I found two of my pics were Editors' Choice today :) What a nice surprise!

Blue gate on beach was shot while at the beach. I had to apply many levels adjustments and some dodging and burning to make the sky look dramatic and at the same time have the gate not sink in total shade. Had I had a flash at that time I would have probably filled in the shadows easily.

Neoclassical building interior was shot many years ago in Messina with my newly bought Nikon d70. This building interior looked really fascinating to me. I really liked the yellow light coming through the glass ceiling. I wasn't satisfied until I found this awkward point of view. I then added a slight diffuse effect in ps and some noise reduction with noise ninja.

Hope you like it too! :)

both great images! A flash for that gate definitely would have saved you all that PS work, but I have been in the same situation, so I completely understand what you went throught to get that image looking like it does. Great job. I hope they sell like hotcakes!
