‘Henrietta’ the 1933 Austin 7 Box Saloon travels the snowy county lanes seeking out the most beautiful tree to take home for the Christmas holidays.

Made using a photograph of the car along a farm track amongst woodland taken in October 2008. If you look carefully – you can just see Tigger our black cocker spaniel dog in the back seat of the car!

Snowy Trees – from Stockxchng

How it was made:-
A copy of the background was made and then converted to a black and white image.
Using the eraser I removed the black and white layer around the car and the gate post to reveal the original colour of the background layer.
Another new adjustment layer was made with a cooling photo filter to make the white look more wintery.
A photo of two fir trees was found and the trees cut out of their background – placed on another layer and resized and blended in – this was done twice to give the trees both left and right side of image.
An irregular frame added to outside to complete.
