My first blog .. Here I go.

Creating the Botany Bay sunset shot

I had two photos that on their own had some interesting points but each where not as exiting or interesting as I wanted


First I had this shot of three birds (White Ibis I think) flying in formation - interesting but not interesting enough

Then I had this shot of the Sunset from later on in the day:

Tacking both photos into Photoshop:
- Removed noise from both shots using Topaz Denoize
- Masked in the birds on to the sunset background using Topaz Mask and then further fine tuning by hand with just my mouse by the way.
- Once completed I ran the two image through Topaz Impressions to give it the look I needed and remove some of the harshness of the background.
- Once all the images where compiled I did some further fine tuning in Lightroom for the final image:
