Sometimes I just can't help myself. It may be a dreary day outside and I am stuck inside. So my creative juices start flowing and I think of odd and different experiments to do with photos I have taken.
Here is an original shot:
So I took it into Photoshop 7.0 and used Topaz ReMask to cut out the stump...
I next added a layer of yellow leaves...
Now I have the original as the backround layer, the stump in its own layer that is cut out and I added the yellow leaves.
I tried varies things like changing the opacity of the yellow leaves just to see the effect. Well, that didn't work well, so I decided to try something different.
I added the leaves in two layers. Then used layer masks and the wonderful editing brush to leave in what I wanted and edit out what I didn't. This effect allowed me to show both the summer season in the forest and the fall season. It was a fun experiment.
