Writing with Light

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

The hallway in this image, on the top floor of the Elgin / Winter Garden Theatre complex,  is meant to lead the theatre goer forward. The final destination…the Winter Garden Theatre and (depending on the show) another place or time that you can immerse yourself.

I converted this image to B&W using the just released Topaz B&W Effects 2. I really like the upgrades in version 2, the user interface has been greatly improved. Topaz B&W Effects 2 is a complimentary upgrade for existing owners of B&W Effects 1.

Don’t have B&W Effects? Get it for 30% off until the end of February with coupon code bwfx2 (expires on 2/28/13) This coupon code is also good for any bundle purchase. Click here to purchase.

  11. I have nothing at all to do with Topaz, but I thought I’d pass on that you get 30% off of any Topaz package that contains the new B&W Effects filter. So if, for example, you purchase their enrtire Photoshop plug-in package, it is 30% off. It is a great deal.

  14. Edith, you probably want to change the color of the link to purchase a print… I saw it by accident… its the same color as your background so its invisible… unless you intended it that way 🙂
