Decided to turn the one I posted earlier, which you can View Here. Want to put this into the B/W Challenge.

Did the post post work in Adobe Photoshop Elements 10, turning it into a B/W.

Playing catch up a little later today.

Thank you for your time and comments.

Have a Wonderful Day, ♥ Skates

Nicely done Pat - that shot and that hotel is so well suited to the B&W watercolor treatment and you executed it beautifully.

I didn't really think that B&W would work using this technique but it does. Well done Pat.

Tulips look unusual in B&W....Look like anemic egg cup holders! ~Chuckles~

Good lines here, and a must for Lyn

A good rework of your image Pat. Nice post work and a good b/w presentation of the scene.

When you visit this hotel without being an actual guest, they won't let you past those signs on the left. I managed to get past the invisible barrier by asking for a brochure in case I wanted to stay here for my next visit (I even got inside the lobby!). The smallest and cheapest room at that time (in 2001) was $100 a night. I have yet to revisit the island, 12 years later, and I'm sure it's even more expensive today. I like the watercolor effect you used on the image. -Nik
