Ansel Adams at the Grand Hotel
I thought that Ansel Adams would be proud to see this imitation of his work. I took an image of the Grand Hotel at sunset with light gleaming off of the facade and cloud patterns that cried out to be photographed. Then, inspired by the work of master photographer Ansel Adams, I worked some Photoshop techniques in my computer's darkroom.
The result -- this very Ansel-look version of Mackinac Island's Grand Hotel as it might have appeared in another century.
