Hotel in Arles

We can’t get enough of the Silver Efex tool from Nik.   We love the entire Nik suite, but they have been genius in creating this Silver Efex plug-in.  The other day, we posted a pic of the Louvre that we edited with Silver Efex.  Here are a couple shots of a hotel we saw in Arles, Provence, a couple years ago.

The original photo was OK, but just OK.  It showed the hotel and it’s interesting lines, with the garage underneath and the promise of “Tout Confort.’  But this part of Arles had a sort of faded, gritty feel, and so we wanted to re-create that in the picture.  The first, below, makes us think of a vintage feel, with the bikes and no color.  For the second, we wanted to bring back a bit of life, perhaps as a faded postcard.

Hope you enjoy them!
