Pull up a Seat Photo Challenge 2022-Week 9


Welcome to week 9 of the Pull up a Seat Challenge in 2022. It’s officially meteorological spring now!

Take a load off and share a favorite perch by linking your post to this one, either with a comment or ping-back. For more detailed directions go to Pull Up a Seat page.

It is always fun to see the variety of ideas this theme evokes.

My contribution this week:

I found this old photo when I was working on Chinese lines for Cee’s Black and White Challenge last week. It shows all nine of the dragons on the famous nine dragon screen at the Forbidden City in Beijing. It’s actually pretty hard to get an angle where you can get them all in one frame. By the time you get that far into the Forbidden City you really do need to sit down. Problem is that the seats provided look away from the screen!

I gave the photo an artsy treatment with Topaz Studio 2 textures to make the blown out highlights and chromatic aberration less noticeable.

Over to you
