Guadalajara

Panteon de Mezquitan

This is a head stone from the Mezquitan cemetery (Panteon) in Guadalajara.

Some of the head stones are crumbling and falling apart. This one intrigued me. We think what looks to be a rock where the dove is resting is actually a sitting figure. If you look you can make out the remnants of a head and shoulders and on the left is a arm broken at the wrist or forearm.

I did a little work on this one.

I masked the sky and changed the temperature, saturation and exposure. On the foreground I warmed up the temperature and lightened it using the exposure.

Splat?!

I think of seated figure too. The conversion you did, looks very natural.
John Eagle: Thanks, Splat.
