Berlin Cathedral: Creating a Retro Postcard from a Digital Photo

Berlin Cathedral: Retro Postcard

The author of this tutorial is Valentina Aynagos.

 

Berlin is one of the most exciting Europe metropolises. I'm never bored of walking on the streets of this city, where modern and high-tech architectural buildings are neighbors with impressive XIX century cathedrals and palaces representing the glory of the imperial Prussia.

I took this photo of the Berlin Cathedral on a gloomy November day. I found the composition good enough to make a postcard out of it to share with my friends back at home. This cathedral was built in 1894, so I wondered how it could look on postcards at the end of the XIX century. So I also created a "retro" version of my postcard.

I used AliveColors and the plugin versions of AKVIS Sketch and AKVIS ArtSuite.
