Take A Ride
I love working with and photographing London’s iconic Eye.
The London Eye The world’s largest observation wheel is 135 metres high. It provides a 30-minute, slow-moving ‘flight’ over London. Designed to reflect the elements of air, water, earth and time – the central theme is a circle of white light from within the rim which sweeps the skyline at 135 metres. The passenger capsules signifying ‘time’, is lit internally at the point of embarcation. Each high-tech capsule accommodating up to 25 people. The attraction has the capacity to handle 1,500 visitors every hour. The British Airways London Eye is a privately funded venture between British Airways, the Tussauds Group and London architects David Marks and Julia Barfield.
Eye cut out in channel selection mode using dodge and burn to creat a black mask of the eye. Then loading mask as a selection. Replaced bland white or grey sky with a beautiful blue cloud scene. Clouds frist enhanced with a vignette, and adjusted in brightness and RGB colour sliders. Copied into Eye selection layers. Merged and saved. Simples Really:-) Only took 15 mins.
Doing a complex cutout with the other selection tools in PS4 would have taken a lot longer and would not have been as precise.
