Week 44 by Becky
I would love to say I went to a country with castles. Instead, I went to Universal Studio's Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida for the kid's spring break. This is the Harry Potter ride. Took this with my son's Nikon Coolpix S3000. I just love how it all looked so real. This was a very popular area of the park. The lines for the Butterbeer were ridiculous. But, I had to have one which turned out to be Vernors and cream. Very tasty. The ride was also very neat. Opened in Photoshop CS5, created a B/W layer using Topaz B/W, then changed the blending mode to luminosity to boost the contrast, then Topaz Adjust 5 Spicify, content aware to remove the tourists from the scene, cropped it down, then applied Topaz B/W Opalotype Collection White Chocolate, resized and saved for web.
