Patisserie  by day and Auberge by night, they do a fine sandwich and range of cakes.

It is in Churchtown, a village at the north end of Southport, pre-dating the town by at least eight hundred years.

Displaying my ignorance what is a Auberge. Quite like the processing you have used on this image
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Zed, Auberge is French for an inn r hostel, although in this case I think they should have used Bistro in their slogan instead.
A touch of topaz here by the look of it and I like the texture in the background.
Les Auld: GDR generated from a single raw image then processed in Photoshop with a touch of Topaz as you have readily surmised Bill. You just have to use it. Thanks for the comment.

You really have a wonderful way of "romanticizing" every shot you take, Les. I'm never disappointed!
Les Auld: Thanks for the compliment Ginnie, I do appreciate it. Never thought of myself as romanticizing things though.
The PP has lifted this well.from what I imagine.. a very ordinary shot. I use PP..but I think your braver than me..I should do more. This has come out well Les.
Les Auld: Well spotted Ron, it was just an ordinary shot processed in Photomatix and Photoshop with some textures added. Thanks for the comment.

Love the processing on this Les, it works so well. I might just have cloned out those few branches between the chimneys as a finishing touch.
Les Auld: A distinct possibility Brian, thanks for the comment.
