Portico #2

The columns were the feature that caught my attention, but the mosaic behind them intrigued me. Why put it behind the columns?

Well, I don’t know the answer to that question. Nor do I know what the mosaic depicts. But I do think that it looks amazing.

So, I converted the image to black and white, used layer masks to pull through the coloured mosaic. And, suddenly, the mosaic has preeminence – although it’s still obscured!

(Other, similar images can be found on my Flickr site – if you’re interested.)
