I was inspired to give this a try after reading about it here and also listening to Marco's podcast about Photoshop Actions.

I found this preset here:


I had a photo of the Calgary Tower peaking over an old bank:

Here it is modified:

That was fun and I learned how to download presets into Lightroom to boot.

Thatís kinda nice. Show us some more if you have any. Iíd be more interested in the old bank than the tower behind it. I like the signs of weathering around its edges and the structure on the top. Do you have any more where youíve gotten in tighter on some of its features?

I suppose that a preset in Lightroom is the equivalent of an action in PS? I guess Iíll have to break down a get Lightroom if I want to continue to use actions or anything like them.

I took delivery this past Friday of a new computer with an AMD Quad Core Processor and my old copy of PS7 isnít going to run on it. I wonít miss PS7 or the old relic that I was running it on.

I VERY much like the B/w treatment here - great shapes too!
