Lake Day - When The Sunshines #262

in #photography3 years ago

That's a beautiful sight to see isn't it? I used a background that really didn't match the foreground photo just to see if i could do it. You can see the trees doesn't match but sets in well enough. You can see the sky and fog that I had to color match and change, it doesn't really show but the small details slowed me to set the trees and match to the water better. I created the trees using another photo so I randomly put trees in places I thought would fit best I'll have to do a how to for that also.

I changed the tree line to different kind of trees, I changed the beach area that's really a field but looks good. I did a lot of color changes in deep levels I will have to do a how to later on that shows you how to change just one color at a time.

Lets invert it so that only the white shows the land area and the black is transparent on top.

Lets clean up using the paint brush and fill in the two areas so its just white on top and black on bottom.

Now lets use the Threshold so we can easily separate the two parts from each other.

Lets use the Mono Mixer to turn it black and white
