A creation using 4 photographs. 3 provided by the group host and haystack was mine. Made specifically for a group contest. I LOVE the way it turned out. My first time doing a composit and I’m thrilled with it!
I merged all 3 textures into one and blended them with the eraser tool set to different opacities.. is that a word? Then I added my Haystack rock pic and did the same. I then played with the levels and used the brush tool to burn in some color and the dodge tool to lighten some highlights… that’s about it.
All done in Photoshop CS3
My Haystack photo was taken with a Nikon D80
