Post Production Work: Two photographs I made (one of clouds and one of a man steering a gondola on the lake in Central Park) were merged (layered) using Photoshop CS4. The cloud image was used as I shot it, although I used only a portion of the original shot. The gondola image was adjusted using layers so I could control the opacity to fade in and out parts I wanted. I stripped away the entire background of the gondola image leaving just the boat, the man, the oar. Both images were adjusted in Lightroom 2 before being brought into Photoshop CS4. In Lightroom the brightness and contrast were slightly adjusted on each image.

    Marvelous! Looking at it in the frame, it looks like it belongs there and on a wall in a gallery.

  • Ah, if only that could be…
