Rooftop View

We’re back in Quebec City today. This was taken from my hotel room at the Chateau Frontenac. What I really liked about this view were the lines of the snow-covered sloping roofs. I used Topaz B&W Effects to convert the image to B&W and increased the contrast in order to accentuate the lines.

  5. What a view! I like you framed the shot with the roof tops to the side and the grainy texture adds a vintage feel.
