Cee’s Black & White Photo Thingie

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these — I’ve been tired y’all. Just tired.  I meant to do one last week, but just… didn’t.  Anyway, the theme this week is Anything that is Hot and / or Cold which works out for me because I kind of had this screen shot in mind for last week which was “field” and this is kind of a field of ice… but it fits better for this theme. 🙂

Anyway, as most of y’all know, I usually use screenshot from my Skyrim game for these. As is the case with most video games, one reaches a point where the player character just cannot go any further.  The edge of the world.  This screenshot is taken at one such place in Skyrim. The edge of this map stops in the water, and there’s ice all around, I can bring my character to one point and then I will hit an invisible wall and have to turn back.  In the game, there’s a blue filter that looks pretty awesome in game, but in the screenshot… not so much. Here’s the original screenshot: 

I mean, it still looks pretty and all, but you can barely see the College of Winterhold and the statue of Azura in the distance because of the blue filter. Like I said, it looks pretty awesome in game. It just doesn’t translate well into a screenshot. A few minutes fiddling around in Photoshop though, and it looks as well as it did in game: 

With a black and white filter of course, and some other stuff to bring out the contrast. Skyrim really is a beautiful game. I play it because it’s so beautiful.  I don’t have anything hot to share, but I hope you enjoyed this picture.
