This image is a photo illustration. Move your mouse onto and off of it to see a direct "before-and-after" comparison with the original photograph. This shows how I can compensate for less-than-ideal conditions at the time of a site visit, through the use of various digital techniques. In this instance, I put in a more interesting sunset sky and brought in portions of images I made from the same position earlier in the evening, to better express what the eye actually sees (which may be quite different from what the film records). My rule in creating photo illustrations is that although I may make many changes, the final illustration will accurately reflect the architect's capabilities.
