Holy City – Charleston, South Carolina

I processed this image using Topaz Simplify. The Simplify program can turn your image into an oil painting or give it a cartoon effect which if fun and creative. With this image I used the an oil painting and drawing combination at the programs minimal settings to enhance the image and bring out more detail in this nighttime exposure.

When the tall ships approached Charleston after a long voyage the first thing the sailors saw were the wonderful Church Steeples and coined it the Holy City. The Battery Park section of Charleston has changed little over the last two hundred years and when you are in Charleston harbor viewing the old city it is easy to imaging sailing ships approaching Colonial Charleston and looking forward to shore leave.

About europeanimages

Light is both the photographer's palette and brush. Harnessing available light is a skill learned through the study of technical theory and then applying it in the field. My goal as a photographer is to search out the images that interest me artistically, then once I have found the essence of that place I use composition and light to enhance the images.
