The Old Salt

Tarrby

Ainsdale, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

I saw this man at a Riverfest in Liverpool, he was dressed up as an old seaman in the Albert Dock. I thought he had a great face, full of character so I decided to put him into a composite picture. The first problem was that he had a pair of modern glasses hanging around his neck, so they had to go and the background was full of people in modern dress, so they had to go too. I looked back into my archives for a suitable background and found one from pictures I had taken several years ago when The Tall Ships were in town.
I put them together added 2 of my textures and used a bleach bypass filter in Nik Efex, then dodged and burned, added another texture and finished it off in Topaz and CS6
