Roofs of the Palace Museum


(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

When I went to China for the first time in 1987 I was fascinated by the roof lines of the palaces in the Forbidden City (Palace Museum) in Beijing.  I must have taken hundreds of pictures (slides) on the day we were there.

I scanned the slides a couple of years ago, but some of them had deteriorated so badly that they didn’t result in a very good digital image.  I decided to play around in Photoshop to see what would happen if I tried to give a poor image a ‘vintage’ look.  This is the result, which I rather like.
