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:
It's a little noisy but overall I liked it but it was lacking something. So I set about doing some experimentation.
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:
I am really please with the end result.
