Photo Editing

Austria is a small country of 8.82 million people. There is no such thing as a really big city. To call Linz the third largest city is just a good advertisement, because the population is only a little bit over 200.000. At least is Linz the capital of Upper Austria and has some really nice and interesting highlights worthwhile to visit.

Last week we were passing Linz at the highway. I suggested to have a breakfast in a famous pastry shop – at least this is the official version, the version I told my husband. Instead I lured him to breakfast, because just around the corner of Konditorei Jindrak is my favorite charity shop. Roland got coffee and Kardinalschnitte and I got three old wooden frames. Taste is a very personal matter!

Standing right in front of the shop (Bischofstraße) I photographed Urselinenkirche and Höhenrausch. I liked the perspective and the shadows. And the strange idea to put a ship high above the roofs (this year is the theme of Höhenrausch "water").

I began to play with the picture by using my tiny program for dummies. In the end, I couldn't decide, which version I loved most, therefore I posted them all. The original picture is the last one.

I made the mistake of reading your blog and watching the making of the  Kardinalschnitten before having breakfast. I am  drooling and I am starved.  Looking at all your edits there are some that I prefer over others. My favorite ones are #1,#2,#3,#5, and the original. With #5 and the original being equal. For some reason I was no able to go to the Hohenrausch using your link, I did manage to go on my own to figure out why and what. It is rather strange to have a ship as part of the roof. Interesting concept though :)

joy I never could make such complicated cakes, I only will ate them - once in a while. joy
I was carried away by hitting buttons on paint.net - gladly there was no "red button" and therefore nothing exploded. Sometimes, I gain a picture, which I would like to have as a handbag, a shower curtain or painted/printed on an upcycled piece of furniture. Today I told my husband, I would like to print some pictures. A long row of small frames with different editions would be funny in a long corridor.
I controlled the link and now it's working. http://www.hoehenrausch.at

I think I would get a coffee to go and be with you in the charity shop... no Kardinalschnitte for me (I really don't like gooey cakes, and I have never understood why everyone goes on about Sachertorte... just good marketing by the hotel I think). Of the picture versions I'm not keen on special effects so I would go with the simple sepia treatment or the original.

Thanks! smile
Sachertorte, just another dark and dry cake ...
We went on the next day with friends to Passau and even before I found a place to park my car, I saw the flea market ... They went to the "Biergarten" and I run (!) back (1 km !) to search for old photography. It's not to gain and posses things, but to hunt and find them. Three wooden frames for my friend, who is an artist. She will restore the frames and she is also a incredible good photographer of still lifes. Our office looks like a noble living room with lots of "old artwork".

Hi Sigrid, all the edits are nice on their own merit. Personally I would like a combination of what you did in the first one and second one. What program did u use? If your are interested I can recommend to you a free photo editing software, that is just the same as Photoshop.

I'm just a beginner ("oh, there is another button - let's try it!"), but I have to learn more about it. I use paint.net, but I have a photoshop license too, but I'm to "lazy" to learn more about this MIGHTY TOOL.

Sigrid...as I have mentioned many times, I use Photoshop, which is not the best for creating digital art. Yes I agree it is a complicated program. However their are many thousands of tutorials on the internet, which is how I learned. If I, in my 70's when I really started to learn Photoshop, you can do it to. The free good editing and painting program is called Gimp..this is the  https://www.gimp.org/downloads/

I would choose #4. That Kardinalschnitte looks rather delicious cake

#4 - imagine it in a light grey or shiny silver on a white furiniture ...
Kardinalschnitte is beyond DELICIOUS - please, never eat this famous but dry and boring Sachertorte.
