An alternative view of Eureka Tower

Yesterday's photo was taken from the Shrine of Remembrance, about 1 km south of the tower. This one is shot from Birrarung Marr, 500 metres to the north east, on the other side of the river. I decided to go for selective colouring to help separate the amusement ride from the tower itself. It's a bit "untrendy" as a technique nowadays, but what the hell, I like it:-)

  1. I actually really like that effect of just colouring certain bits in a photo Alan, I just don't know how to do it.

  2. I think that your selective colouring works really well in this picture Alan. Well done!

  3. Looks like a giant claw from transformers is about to take hold of Melbourne.

  4. Great effect using the selective colouring - very clever! It certainly separates the claw from the tower.

  9. Grace, it depends on the software you use. If you have Photoshop or Gimp or any that supports layers, I'd be happy to send you a little tutorial:-)

    Lego, transformers, claws... you're an imaginative lot, that's for sure:-)

  10. Just an interesting photo. Color hand attraction is the great black and white background. As a weekday, and entertainment. Peter.
