Summer Musing

Here's some of the things I've been up to this summer...

I'm still working on learning more about compositing...combining elements from different images... 

Here are a few more early results... The 'flying carpet' was actually a learning exercise with someone else's images.. ... but the mind boggles with the possibilities... 

In the first image, the so-called 'super moon' taken on the Sunshine Coast, just didn't look big enough to me, so I made it larger, but then also had to increase the size of the reflection in the water. 

In this picture I added all the flying birds which I had photographed separately from the original shot. 

And finally in this exercise, I put in the square picture of the clock, but then distorted its shape. Notice how I also created the corresponding shadow and changed the flying carpet so it was darker underneath and lighter on top. The birds were also layered in independently. 

Still loving photographing the grandkids. And why wouldn't I? They are so cute!!
