A View of Chinon

Nearby Richelieu might be a model town in the sense of being a town designed from scratch, but the maquette tool in PhotoShop transforms Chinon too, into something that would grace the finest 3D architectural model display.

  1. These pix are fun...
    it is a marvel what tricks the eye will play when fed a bit of disinformation!

  2. I thought this looked like a model at first, then did a double take, then read your post. Interesting effect...

  3. Interesting effect BUT what is or was the white shadowy figure at the cross roads? Jeane perhaps!!

  4. Tim, Betty: It's a great way to highlight certain features of a photo.

    C&E: I can't remember who the figure represents, but I think it's advertising the shop it's outside.

  5. "maquette tool" I wish someone would show me where that is, so I didn't spend an hour or so doing it manually....

  6. Tim is VERY impressed with both this and the railway layout. I am too, but understand less (read nothing!) about the techniques involved. Well done.

  7. Nice picture - I like the idea that anywhere can be turned into 'Toy-Town". Quite Lewis Carroll!
    All the best to all our bloggers for 2015.
