So...I changed all that.
Here is the original shot of the big blue building on the corner.
Here it is with some blue sky and clouds:
Here there is a wicked storm approaching:
Here is the wall with the blue paint on it.
Now it's a nice blurry texture with a hint of blue for effect.
Here is the dingy looking brick wall.
Here it is transformed into a texture.
Oh, and that cup you saw earlier?
This is what the original shot looked like.
Much more dramatic with the white spot removed and replaced with black, yes?
Long Live the Queen of Manipulation
