Introducing leggings. Step into a world of stunning designs.

please view large

Three raw images recently taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and carefully cut out with my newly learned pen using tool skills in PS CS6. (Learnt not without a few tears of frustration). :)
The pen tool is slow and methodical compared to the select tools but when used properly the result of clean edges is far superior. The clean edges were then made less sharp with blurring and burning to facilitate blending. (yep, go figure lol).

The church is St Mary’s of Castlemaine. The peacock was taken at Jubilee Lake in Daylesford the same weekend, and the sky was shot near home in the Macedon Ranges. (Australia)

Obsessed with riding the learning curve.
Having a blast.
Thanks for stopping by.
